Property owners carry vast responsibilities, and keeping their tenants safe has to be priority number one. One of the ways in which they do this is by ensuring that the very buildings in which their tenants inhabit are safe and structurally sound. This requires ongoing maintenance, updates and inspections.
Why You Must Prioritize Inspections
As our buildings in Florida age, they become weakened by weather as well as everyday wear and tear. It can be easy to underestimate these impacts – and how quickly they can severely damage a building.
To ensure your building is meeting the most current safety standards, systems, and processes (which also evolve and improve over time), we recommend partnering with a local commercial contractor who is well-versed on the latest building code requirements and who is also well-connected to experienced trades professionals, such as structural engineers and architects.
At Seacoast Construction, we’ve seen far too many buildings push the bounds of what is structurally safe. Not only is this dangerous but it also becomes much more expensive. This is due to the fact that many property owners are left with no other choice but to take on a significant project when it would have been much more cost-effective had they stayed on top of ongoing maintenance and repairs.
Plan and Budget for the Future
One other important reason to prioritize building inspections is that you don’t want to be caught off guard with big surprises when your building’s 40-year recertification comes around. Talking to a GC early allows you to adequately plan so you have the best team, the best materials and the safest outcome for your tenants.
