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
• 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.
