Extend the Life of Existing Self-Storage Buildings

Trachte is your committed partner, with you for the long haul. In the competitive market to attract self-storage customers, it is paramount to have your buildings protect customers’ belongings and project curb appeal. A fully refurbished property supports higher occupancy, higher rental rates, and increases project appraisals. Buildings may be refurbished by adding a slipcover system over damaged and weathered jambs and headers. Replacement A-panel can be applied to walls to create a factory new appearance.

Our crews are also experienced in total facility door replacement. New doors are a long lasting answer to weathered finishes, dented panels and broken springs.

Your building’s roof is one of the hardest working components of your self-storage buildings, and when it comes to protecting your customers’ belongings, perhaps the most important. Metal roofs typically have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years, or may be replaced sooner due to tree or hail damage.

Trachte’s re-roof program provides a simple solution to re-roofing, using the same quality materials in colors to match the original appearance of the building. The process never exposes the building interior, includes new trim, and is available over standing seam or screw down roofs.

Contact your Trachte Regional Manager to discuss available options to refresh your self-storage property.
