Thanks to our valued clients for making this milestone possible.  
Will You Have Adequate Capital Replacement Funds for the Future?
Capital replacement plans typically focus on depreciable assets. However, every component of a building will need to be replaced, repaired or maintained over time. As buildings age, expenses tend to compound, and you can suddenly find yourself without funds to fix costly problems. Read our helpful article to learn what you need to include to properly budget for the future. 
Focus on Facilities: Time for a Perimeter Check 
Ben Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When it comes to preventative facilities maintenance, this is very true. As summer landscaping programs are ramping up, we wanted to remind building owners and managers to conduct a Perimeter Check to make sure soil, grass, mulch, etc. are 4” or more away from the base of exterior finishes such as stone, stucco or brick to prevent potential building damage.
