Townhome Or Condo Home Maintenance

Starfish The Gray Team Ucluelet Real Estate

We received an article from the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) that will be of interest to those preparing to purchase a condo or townhouse, or for those who already own a unit in a multi-resident building.

New Condo and Townhouse Maintenance

HPO - Tofino & Ucluelet Real Estate

HPO has produced a series of Maintenance Matters videos that give you practical information on maintaining the building envelope of townhomes and condo apartment buildings.

They give you the whys and the how-to that is particularly helpful for those looking to buy into real estate of this nature for the first time.

Why is it important to know this kind of information?

  • It enhances property value and curb appeal.
  • It will save you money by preventing costly problems and repairs in the future.
  • Failure to keep up regular and proper maintenance can compromise your building’s home warranty insurance. Providers can actually DENY coverage if they feel maintenance has been poorly done or neglected.

Videos include topics on below grade assemblies, exposed wood structures, and cladding.




The Maintenance Matters videos go along with a series of bulletins. Find full PDF bulletins and other resources at www.hpo.bc.ca/maintenance-matters. Topics include:

  • At-Grade and Below-Grade Assemblies
  • Exposed Wood Structures
  • Cladding
  • Building Envelope Maintenance and Renewals Planning
  • Decks and Balconies
  • Sealants
  • Residential Windows and Exterior Doors
  • Avoiding Condensation Problems in Your Home
  • Maintaining your Roof
  • Paints, Stains, and Coatings

Prevent damage and avoid costly repairs with proper maintenance.  HPO has more resources that can help point you in the right direction.  To be notified of new Maintenance Matters bulletins or videos, subscribe by visiting their Email Subscriptions page.
