Maintenance is actually a process by which a building is kept usable at a pre-determined standard for the use and benefit of its occupants or users. The standard may vary according to the function of a building. It is an aspect of the construction industry that is often neglected. This neglect does not only have an impact on the building itself but also for the occupants inside. Currently, there are various issues related to lack of maintenance activities, such as resource allocation, cost problems, etc. These issues are very important in building maintenance to ensure proper maintenance from time to time; so that the occupants can live more comfortably and safely. The objective of this study was to investigate the cause of lack of provisions and the costs involved in maintenance. There are three types of costs that can be identified in maintenance activities, such as cost of servicing, repair, and replacement. This paper discusses all these activities in greater detail.
