Condominium property managers, along with condo boards and service contractors, play a big role in keeping condos in peak condition.
Condo corporations are responsible for the ongoing maintenance and repairs of anything beyond the boundaries of individual units, which include parking garages, gardens, hallway lights, elevators, swimming pools and more.
Why Regular Scheduled Maintenance and Repairs Are Important For Condos
Having a regularly scheduled maintenance and repair system in place will help condo property managers ensure that all condo operations are running smoothly without incidence. Delaying maintenance plans can have measurable short term gains, but delaying repairs and replacement to building components and systems can come with risks and potential costs. Regular maintenance is crucial in order to:
- Increase life of building components
- Improve community visual appeal
- Increase pride of ownership
- Improve standard of living for condo residents
All of these factors can be kept in check by investing in a reserve fund study. Under the Condominium Act, all condos are required to have a reserve fund in place to mitigate risk and for emergencies.
When you schedule a study with Criterium Jansen Engineers, our team will provide recommendations for ongoing maintenance of all systems as well as condition evaluation of each. We will also provide a report of considerations for improvements, enhancements, or compliance with newly enacted regulations.
