Property Maintenance

At Trades Directory, we have a list of property maintenance companies that carry out all sorts of repair and maintenance jobs. If you’re a landlord, property developer, local authority, housing group, charity, or commercial customer, these companies will help you keep the buildings you own in top condition.


Property maintenance covers a wide range of services to do with the repair and upkeep of commercial and residential buildings. Property maintenance can be ongoing – with regular checks – or it can be reactive, which means jobs need to be carried out because of breakages or emergencies.

Commercial property maintenance

Commercial properties will often need regular maintenance. They could include:

  • Offices
  • Shops
  • Retail units
  • Schools
  • Local authority buildings
  • Industrial buildings

These buildings often need property maintenance and facilities work carried out, whether it’s re-decorating between tenants, ongoing repairs, emergency repairs, or a complete overhaul such as a shop re-fitting. Many of the businesses listed in Trades Directory specialise in commercial maintenance, so you can be sure that the work will be carried out quickly, and to the highest standards.

Private property maintenance

One group of people who will often use property maintenance firms are landlords. It’s important to keep properties that you let out in top condition, and a property maintenance firm will make it so much easier, especially for those with multiple houses and flats. Once you’ve found the right property maintenance firm, you simply call them up to sort out reactive maintenance, and they’ll usually send you a reminder when scheduled maintenance is due. Some of the jobs they might carry out on your behalf include:

  • Painting and decorating
  • Electrical and plumbing repairs
  • Annual gas and electrical safety certificates
  • Emergency call-outs for leaks, flooding etc.
  • Repairing broken windows and doors
  • Replacing locks when required

As they carry out so many important tasks, you need to ensure you find a reliable, well-established property maintenance firm. That’s why Trades Directory has put together a list of some of the best in the business, so you can be sure that when you need them most, they’ll be there to carry out the work in a timely manner.

Landlords have many legal obligations such as getting annual checks carried out, and ensuring things like boiler breakdowns are fixed within 24 hours. Therefore, using a property maintenance company is much easier than managing things yourself.
