Installing new windows and doors in your commercial building is a fantastic way to improve insulation, safety, and security, and add value to your property. However, it’s equally important to ensure that your windows and doors remain in excellent working condition to minimise your costs and avoid expensive repairs in the future.
Experienced contractors are the best and most suitably qualified experts to undertake window and door maintenance. In this article, we’ll outline five compelling reasons why you should contact Mila Maintenance to look after your commercial building’s windows and doors.
1. Improved Energy Efficiency
The war in Ukraine and other global factors have resulted in spiralling energy costs that have affected business and residential customers alike. Windows and doors that have not been properly maintained allow warm air to escape easily, meaning central heating has to be put on more often and for longer, thereby increasing energy bills. Window and door maintenance will help to keep the building insulated more effectively and reduce cold draughts, helping occupants to save money and enjoy a more pleasant living environment.
2. Enhanced Safety
Regular maintenance of your windows and doors ensures that they operate correctly and can be opened, closed, and locked without difficulty. Windows that can be securely closed prevent unwanted visitors from gaining access to the building and also ensure that occupants cannot accidentally fall from height, which could lead to serious injury or even death. A programme of maintenance would also ensure that all window and door components are installed correctly, are safe, and easy to use.
Commercial windows and doors require regular maintenance to ensure that any emerging faults or wear and tear is spotted and remedied at the earliest opportunity. This prevents more serious problems from occurring that could render the window or door to be unsafe or ineffective, and also reduces the likelihood of having to carry out more expensive repairs at a later date. Preventive maintenance is a cost-efficient strategy that helps commercial building owners get the best out of their windows and doors.
4. Improved Aesthetics
Windows and doors which are tired and in need of repair create a negative impression and make a commercial building look scruffy and uncared for. On the other hand, well-maintained windows and doors improve the appearance of a building and create a positive and aesthetically pleasing impression. If you wish to attract new tenants to your commercial building, it’s important that you maintain the exterior of the property to ensure that its unkempt appearance does not put off potential customers.
5. Reduce Your Liabilities
Finally, at the end of your lease, you may need to repair any damage or defects as part of the dilapidation clause to return the property to its original condition. Failing to keep up with window and door maintenance is likely to increase the cost of repairs and result in unplanned and expensive bills for which you haven’t budgeted. A programme of preventive maintenance will ensure that any issues are promptly identified and enable you to conclude your lease without extensive repairs.
