Proactive Maintenance vs. Reactive Maintenance

BMS Building Maintenance Services - Architectural Restoration

When it comes to preserving and maintaining your metal, stone and wooden surfaces, in the words of Ben Franklin, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  So often we fall into the trap of cutting general maintenance and upkeep in order to save money in the short term.  Sacrificing regular preventive maintenance of assets that are currently “working fine” may create immediate savings, but will cost more for your business in the long term.

Regular periodic maintenance of your wood, metal and stone increases the life of your asset, reduces the need for costly and unplanned repairs, and makes your property look attractive to visitors and prospective tenants, and may even increase your rent value.
