Building exterior problems don’t just spring up on the day you notice an issue – usually they’ve been building for quite a while before becoming visible. The best way to avoid expensive issues is to identify these trouble sources before they grow too large, which is why it’s best to perform regular inspections of your facility’s facade. Be sure to look for any signs of material degradation or corrosion. Problems may not be immediately obvious but checking for rust stains, leaky seals on your windows, and other issues can help you get a handle on the problem before it becomes an emergency.
If you’re not sure how to start or accurately identify issues, bringing a professional like an architect or engineer with experience in exterior problems is a good idea.
