Repairs & Construction

Repairs & Construction

Our REAC trained construction technicians can be mobilized on 14-day notice to most parts of the US. We guarantee that you will do well on the next REAC inspection if you let us remediate the REAC defects.

Call us when you get within 4 months of your last REAC inspection up until you get a notice that your inspection will be in 14 days. We can also schedule yearly REAC Inspections and maintenance. 

NIS Good Repair

Our construction / repair work is intended to bring the condition of the property to “good repair” satisfying HUD REAC's new Industry Repair Standards. This assures you that we are not repairing items unnecessarily nor doing more than required under HUD rules, thus saving you scarce dollars.

Low Cost

We provide estimates. You'll be surprised that our costs are not only lower than if you did the work inhouse or you hired non-REAC experienced local contractors, but you would be hiring a contractor that knows exactly what and how to repair REAC defective items.

Trained REAC Specialists

Our Pre-REAC Inspections are conducted by current and former Certified REAC Inspectors. And we repair / correct only REAC deficiencies so that you do not spend more than necessary. We focus only on defects identified in past REAC Inspections and our own Pre-REAC Inspection.

Train and Assist

We have mobile maintenance technicians that are specially trained to identify and repair HUD REAC deficiencies. REAC1 can train and assist your maintenance staff in repairing the defects, or depending on their daily work order load and staffing levels REAC1 can do the necessary construction work to repair some or all of the deficiencies.
