Window and Door Replacement for Property Managers

May 31, 2018 | Category: Design & Renovations

If you’re the Property Manager of a multi-unit rental, whether it’s a low-rise townhouse or a mid-rise apartment building, there may come a time when you need to replace the windows and/or doors. And unlike with your own home, there are some special considerations that come into play.

Why Replace Windows & Doors

There are several reasons why you might nee to replace your building’s windows or doors.

Window Materials and Styles

Apartment buildings have some unique needs, so it’s best to consult a professional company, like Pollard Windows and Doors, to discuss the options. Some of their recommended products include:

Disruption to Tenants

One of the biggest issues you’ll have to deal with when replacing windows (and sometimes doors) is the disruption to the tenants. In a perfect world you could do it between tenants, but this just simply isn’t always possible. Unlike other types of building repairs, window and door replacement has to take place in each individual unit, which can be very intrusive. I highly recommend that you work with a company that can do same day delivery and installation, and will leave the unit spotless at the end of the day. That said, as the Property Manager it’s up to you to communicate clearly with your tenants about how the process will work (or make sure the installers are communicating with them), and what they can do to help (ie – moving furniture away from work areas, etc.).
