Commercial Interior Maintenance, Repair, and Remodeling Services

Interior Commercial Construction Projects

Depending on your business and customer traffic, every commercial interior will need repair at some point in time. Most interior construction projects fall into one of three similar, but uniquely different categories.

Commercial Interior Maintenance
Just like your vehicle, commercial interiors require regular maintenance to keep all the building systems working at peak performance for the comfort and safety of your employees and customers.

Unlike a fresh coat of paint, or changing a floorplan, most maintenance work goes unnoticed because the systems involved are hidden in the walls or above the ceilings.

The plumbing, electrical, and mechanical building systems use a variety of filters, relays, switches, solenoids, and mechanical components to do their job. When these components aren’t serviced regularly, their performance and longevity declines, and they move on to the repair category.

Commercial Interior Repairs
Can be but aren’t always caused by a lack of regular maintenance. Sometimes normal wear and tear will create the need for repairs to the building systems as well as the walls, doors, ceilings, or cabinets. And of course, natural disasters and extreme weather are responsible for billions in commercial interior repairs every year.

Whatever the cause, the biggest challenge for commercial interior repairs is finding a general contractor with the expertise to perform the work while the business remains open serving customers.

“Occupied” repair projects require special considerations for

• Access to the work area
• Working with the insurance company (if applicable)
• Material storage
• Noise and dust mitigation
• Employee and customer safety
• Expedited completion schedule

Commercial Interior Remodeling
In many cases, a commercial interior remodel can be more cost-efficient than moving to a new location as you grow your customer base and service area.

These remodels are typically known as Tenant Improvement (TI) projects because the work is being performed to meet the tenant’s floorplan requirements. These interior remodels can vary dramatically in size and scope, but typically include:

• Selective demo
• Framing
• Insulation
• Drywall
• Cabinets
• Flooring
• Ceilings
• Painting
• Doors and windows
• Trim and hardware

When the work occurs after the tenant moves in, or where the business is in operation, its known as an “Occupied” TI project, and must also consider the key points listed above under Occupied Repairs.

General Contractor FAQS

In case you haven’t worked with a general contractor for a commercial interior construction project before, here are a couple of the most frequently asked questions about commercial interior construction projects.

1. What is commercial construction?

In a nutshell, any building that is non-residential, is classified as commercial construction. While the building techniques and products are very similar, commercial spaces must meet emergency and ADA compliance standards for the general public’s safety. As a result, many general contractors choose to specialize in either residential or commercial projects.

2. What’s the difference between an interior repair and an interior remodel?

Repairs are normally deemed as essential work for the safety and comfort of the building occupants, and usually involve a third-party payer such as an insurance company.

Remodels are planned changes to a space to improve usability for the occupants and funded through bank loans or direct payments.

Commercial Exterior Maintenance, Repair, and Remodeling Services

Exterior Commercial Construction Projects

Depending on your business and customer traffic, every commercial exterior will need repair at some point in time. Most exterior construction projects fall into one of three similar, but uniquely different categories.

Commercial Exterior Maintenance

Most exterior maintenance involves regular cleaning with a pressure washer to remove dirt and moss build-up from the building, fencing and gates, roof drains or gutters, and parking areas.

Commercial Exterior Remodeling

In many cases, a commercial exterior remodel can be more cost-efficient than moving to a new location as you grow your customer base and service area.

These remodels are typically known as Tenant Improvement (TI) projects because the work is being performed to meet the tenant’s specific requirements. These exterior remodels can vary dramatically in size and scope, but typically include:

  • Selective demo
  • Framing
  • Insulation
  • Exterior finish (stucco, brick, or siding)
  • Painting
  • Doors and windows
  • Trim and hardware

When the work occurs after the tenant moves in, or where the business is in operation, it’s known as an “Occupied” TI project, and must also consider the key points listed above under Occupied Repairs.

General Contractor Services

Self-Performing in the State of Florida. Curb to Roof. Coast to Coast.

From simple repairs to make your office more comfortable and functional for your customers to a complete remodel/expansion project to increase square footage, the MaintenX General Contractor and Repairs team is ready to help.

A few of our recent building and management projects include:

  • New ground-up commercial construction buildings
  • Large and small tenant improvement projects
  • Clean Room and Life Science building repairs and remodels
  • Complete Fire, Water, and Storm Damage restoration projects
  • Preventative maintenance plans tailored to your site or business

And, our self-performing business model means not only shorter project timelines, but lower construction costs for you, too.

General contractor services when you need them. No general contractor project is to large or small for our team of construction experts.

The MaintenX team is ready to deliver superior general contractor services for your next project or emergency.

In case you’re not familiar with the term yet, a self-performing contractor performs most of the work with its own employees instead of subcontractors.

For example, in the case of a building addition, instead of hiring a

  • Concrete subcontractor for the slab work
  • Framing contractor for interior and exterior walls
  • Siding subcontractor to install the cement plank siding

And dealing with potential schedule delays and higher prices, the highly skilled MaintenX team members self-perform various aspects of the subcontractor work in the state of Florida.

The self-performance general contractor model provides two distinct benefits for customers and businesses like you.

Since MaintenX is a self-performing general contractor, our project schedules aren’t impacted when a subcontractor overbooks themselves and can’t get to your project for a few days to a few weeks. Instead of being at the mercy of the subcontractor’s schedule, MaintenX can schedule our teams as the project schedule dictates. The result is shorter project timelines for your next construction project.

  1. Over the years we have built a substantial building materials vendor network to support our national clients. And our volume purchasing power means that the prices we pay are typically lower than what most subcontractors pay for the exact same materials. The result is lower building material costs for remodeling and preventative maintenance projects.
  2. A major part of maintenance and facility management is work order processing. When a staff member identifies a need or completes a maintenance task, they must be able to effectively communicate that to the rest of the facility. If they are unable to do so, your preventative maintenance strategies will not work. Services may be completed and not logged; other service requests go unfulfilled; equipment and supplies orders are not made on time; your entire maintenance program goes awry with this system.
  3. Preventing this system of disorder will go a long way toward creating an effective maintenance strategy for your essential systems. It should cover every step, from the submission of a work order request to follow-up upon the completion of each service. When you implement an organized system, the entire facility runs more smoothly. Here are a few tips to get this process right:

In case you haven’t worked with a general contractor for your building repairs or facilities management services before, here are the four most frequently asked questions about general contractor services.

  1. What are the 3 types of contractors?

There are two ways to answer this question, by the issued license or the type of work performed.

State-issued license contractor licenses fall into one of the following categories:

General contractor (building)– allowed to erect buildings and structures

General contractor (civil) – for roadways, tunnels, and bridges

Subcontractor – allowed to perform a specialized trade such as roofing, framing, or drywall.

Many general contractors label themselves by the type of projects they work on:

Residential general contractor– this general contractor builds houses, condos, townhomes, and apartments.

Commercial general contractor– this general contractor builds commercial buildings such as hotels, retail, food service, healthcare, and educational centers.

Civil general contractor – for roadways, tunnels, and bridge projects.

  1. What skills does a general contractor have?

The required trade skills vary depending on the type of construction project. But besides the required construction experience for licensure, a good general contractor should have effective organizational skills to keep the project moving forward while handling any logistics or supply issues that might occur. And top-notch communication skills to keep everyone on the same page and on the same schedule via phone, email, and SMS.

  1. What is commercial construction?

In a nutshell, any building that is non-residential is classified as commercial construction. While the building techniques and products are very similar, commercial spaces must meet emergency and ADA compliance standards for the general public’s safety. As a result, many general contractors choose to specialize in either residential or commercial projects.

  1. What is a self-performing general contractor?

Typically, a general contractor provides the supervision and oversight necessary to keep all the subcontractors on schedule. In this scenario, most of the construction work is completed by subcontractors, around their schedules.

MaintenX is a self-performing general contractor, meaning that our team members perform most of the construction work, not an army of subcontractors with erratic schedules. Besides a shorter project timeline, the self-performing general contractor model, combined with our nationwide supplier network, reduces material costs and markups to lower your construction or remodel costs.
