Hi, and welcome to Maintenance Trends! All of us, at one time or another, need building maintenance advice. Whether you’re a renter, a homeowner, or a commercial property owner, some basic knowledge of building systems and maintenance will help you get — and keep — your place looking and running at its best.

The team behind this site has over 40 years of commercial and residential property management experience. Here at Maintenance Trends, we actually live this stuff, every day. Through experience, research, guest posting, and developing relationships, we’ve gathered expert knowledge and put it in one place for you.

As home and building owners or managers, we all have our least favorite building system to maintain. Is it the plumbing? Is it the controls on the HVAC equipment? Or, does the electrical system scare you to death? Maintenance Trends has you covered. You may never “love” fixing a running toilet, or assuring that your furnace or A/C system is running at peak efficiency, but you’ll feel the positive impact good maintenance has on your annual water and electrical costs. Nearly as much as keeping people’s hands off the thermostat.

What systems should you be maintaining regularly? What are the costs and benefits of doing so? How can you best keep your investment at it’s best? On Maintenance Trends, you’ll find all this and more.

We also want to provide you with the most up-to-date building trends, both in new construction and in retrofit situations. The way we build is changing, systems and materials are getting better and more efficient. You need to know what’s coming down the road, as well as how that is going to change your upkeep and maintenance needs going forward. We’ll keep you informed, and hopefully, a little entertained along the way.

Building maintenance and construction are always evolving. So, this is an ever-changing website. You’ll see periodic changes to the look and feel of the site.
