Building Maintenance Supply: Handyman Checklist for Winter

Keep track of your building maintenance. Here are some things to check off your Handyman checklist this February. 


Even in the winter months, building maintenance is a must. Even though it may seem like a lot of work now, keeping up with your building’s maintenance can save on money, time, and stress in the long run! Aubin Ace Hardware has all your maintenance supplies and the staff to assist you with your next maintenance check. Here are some things to check off your list before Spring!


Winter Building Maintenance 

Whether you own an apartment building or a commercial building, don’t forget to provide routine maintenance checks. Doing routine check-ups adds to the safety of your tenants and can protect you from material damage or, worse, a lawsuit! 

Inspect the Roof

Protecting the roof from ice dams in the winter keeps the roof protected from possible leaks and ice dams. This will protect the building from possible water damage inside and cracked or broken gutters outside.

Interior Inspections

Inspection of the inside can include kitchen appliances, bathroom sinks and tubs, and any issues in the common areas. Update electrical plugs and lighting fixtures when necessary.


  *Always update smoke detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors when necessary. Read this article for a list of the best detectors for 2022

Landscape Inspections

Creating a safe environment for the residents or staff of your building is essential, especially during the winter season. Clear snow from walkways and parking lots, followed by salting or sanding cleared sections. 


Year-Round Maintenance

Some things can be checked throughout the year to make winter maintenance easier:


  • Replace burnt-out lights
  • Replacing windows and doors with energy-efficient products
  • Maintenance and/or replacement of HVAC filters
  • Monthly filter changes
  • Rodent and pest inspections yearly
  • OSHA equipment and fire extinguishers inspections
  • Check doors, latches, and handles for proper function
