Quarterly Building Maintenance Tips

Building owners can do regular maintenance right now to lengthen the life of their building investment and to prevent larger, more expensive problems in the future. With summer, comes summer storms and vegetation growth. Here are some steps that building owners can take for these summer months:

  • Remove plants growing on or close to walls and foundation. (30 min)

  • Visually check for moss or lichen, especially around parapets, sills, and downspouts. (30 min)

  • Check grading at foundation to make sure water will drain away from building and not pool next to the building. (15 min)

  • Inspect basement or crawl space for excessive water during wet weather. (30 min)

  • Inspect interior of building for leaks during first heavy rain of season. (30 min)

  • Examine roof slope to make sure water is not pooling at any areas on the roof. (15 min)

  • Make sure water can flow freely through gutters and downspouts and clean them out if they are clogged. (30 min)

  • Sweep debris from flat or low sloping roofs. (30 min)
