Things break. In a large commercial facility, lots of things break. As a busy facilities manager, it’s easy to put minor repairs on the back burner and prioritize other maintenance projects. But we all know that building conditions can affect a business’s reputation — it can also affect employee and customer safety, comfort, convenience, and satisfaction.
Whether you’re falling behind on repairs, don’t have the resources to handle them internally, or you simply need the tasks off your plate to tackle more important projects, outsourcing facility repair services is a smart way to save time and money while keeping your facility in tip-top condition.
Every Repair Job – Big Or Small
It’s possible to outsource every single facilities repair task, or only pick and choose the ones you need help with. Just like a homeowner that employs a handyman, the great thing about outsourcing is that it is possible to pay a professional for every job – big or small.
Some common facilities repair services include:
- Window and door repair
- Hardware and lock replacement
- Flooring repair and replacement
- Baseboard and molding repair
- Minor plumbing and electrical repair
- Appliance repair
- Masonry and signage repair
- Lighting repair and bulb replacement
- General handyman services
Outsourcing Facility Repair Services Saves You Money
Every aspect of a commercial building must be maintained, and like anything, normal wear and tear takes its toll. It’s possible for facilities teams to handle minor repairs internally, but the reality is that they often pile up. When repairs are ignored, conditions can worsen and end up costing, even more, to repair in the long run.
For example, a minor leak can cause internal water damage and mold, which costs more to repair than the original leak. Or a few loose bricks in your marquee sign becomes a few more, and eventually the structure fails completely. Ignoring repairs can even have surprise consequences, like vandalism due to a back door with a jiggly lock. Or skyrocketing utility bills due to drafty windows and doors.
Making these minor repairs when they arise ultimately saves you time, money, and stress in the long-run.
Convenience Of Outsourcing Facility Repair Services
When you partner with a facilities management company to outsource facility repair services, you enjoy the convenience of having many local vendors at your fingertips. When you don’t have to spend the time and resources requesting multiple estimates and hiring vendors, it’s easier to quickly approve repairs.
By far one of the main advantages of outsourcing facilities repair services to a facilities management company is that they do it ALL on your behalf:
- Vetting Vendors
- Requesting & Comparing Estimates
- Negotiating Pricing
- Scheduling Repairs & Service
- Invoicing (ONE monthly invoice pays all of your vendors!)
They keep you in the loop, communicate quickly and effectively, and work as an extension of your facilities team to move repair and maintenance tasks off your plate and supply you with dependable, affordable service.
Emergency Facilities Repair Services When You Need It
While it’s convenient when something breaks between 9:00 and 5:00, that’s rarely how it happens. Especially if your business runs round the clock, you need to know you have a dependable vendor on-call 24/7.
When you partner with a facilities repair company that employs multiple local vendors, you can be assured you’ll have someone onsite for repairs — when you need it.
