MaintenX Helps Florida Multi-Family Facilities Address Unique Roofing Needs

Multi-family facilities like apartments and condos are often maintenance-heavy compared to retail or industrial facilities and present unique challenges to facility managers.

The key for apartments and condo managers is taking a proactive approach to maintenance, rather than a reactive approach that can cost an association much more in the long run.

There are many perks to living in a multi-family apartment or condo complex. Unique amenities, convenient locations and fewer traditional homeowner stresses are all reasons people choose a multi-family lifestyle. However, these same perks often create unique challenges for facility managers.

That’s why facility managers in Florida turn to MaintenX, one of the nation’s largest providers of preventative and reactive facility maintenance. Often, HOA and apartment managers are faced with maintenance-heavy buildings as compared to a retail or industrial flex building. This is because multi-family residential buildings usually have smaller footprints, more architectural details and a higher density of utility services. These crowded footprints also require that the mechanical equipment be installed on the roof. The roof is a more hostile environment, making it even more critical to engage in routine, preventative roofing and HVAC maintenance.

“The key for apartments and condo managers is taking a proactive approach to maintenance, rather than a reactive approach that can cost an association much more in the long run,” said Derrick Barwick, MaintenX’s Vice President of Operations – Roofing Division.

Subtropical facility managers, like those in Florida, often face the most wear and tear on their roofs due to extreme temperatures, heavy rains, intense sunlight and major weather events like hurricanes.

“In the last five years, roofing trends have found HOA and apartment managers looking for cost-conscious solutions to replacing or extending the life of their roof systems as the buildings age,” said Barwick. “Single Ply TPO or PVC and Restorative Coatings are viable options that give Associations better returns in terms of thermal resistance as well as reflectivity. They are also less expensive to repair when situations arise.”

MaintenX’s roofing leadership team recommends putting together a bi-annual or even quarterly inspection of any roof system to catch issues before the rainy season or hurricane season hits. MaintenX’s skilled technicians can provide a variety of services to address these needs.
