Seneca County business moves to new space just south of Tiffin Staff




Tiffin, Ohio — 5 Star Maintenance has announced that it has moved into a newly-constructed office and warehouse at 1796 S. CR 1, just south of Tiffin. The company specializes in real estate development, commercial/industrial roofing, commercial/industrial painting and office remodels, and employs 24 people in Seneca County.

5 Star Maintenance moved into their new location in July, now occupying 10,000 sf of warehouse and office space. The building was constructed by Fitch Properties for $500,000 and 5 Star Maintenance completed the buildout for the office suite.

Owner Charlie Hayward started Charlie’s Property Maintenance in 2004 and did janitorial work, property clearing and painting for residential clients and landlords.

In 2007, he changed the name to 5 Star, and shortly after began working in the foreclosure industry, mainly focusing on complete restoration projects in foreclosed real estate, and in 2012 began working in historic restorations and added an in-house roofing division.

The company was incorporated in 2017 under Five Star Maintenance & Construction Inc., and made a shift into the commercial and industrial market servicing factories, hotels, offices and malls.

Throughout this process, they have developed sister companies that provide other construction related services and a holding company that buys land and other real estate.

“We’ve come a long way since I started my first company, and I’m very excited that we’ve been able to grow and provide improved service for Tiffin and Seneca County and throughout the state of Ohio,” said Hayward.

Seneca County Board of Commissioners President Mike Kerschner said, “Congratulations to Charlie Hayward and 5 Star Maintenance on their continued growth and moving to a larger facility.”

5 Star Maintenance is a member of the Seneca Regional Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Services. For more information, visit or call (419) 443-0414.
