Learn About the Importance of a Façade
While most people have heard the term “facade” before, they might not fully understand what it is, or why it’s important to the structural integrity of the building. A facade is simply the exterior or the face of the building. Each building’s facade contributes to not only its overall appearance and design, but also its light flow, acoustics, and energy efficiency. It creates a necessary barrier between the inside and outside of the building, while also playing a crucial stylistic role. When a building’s facade is damaged, it can affect the building’s ability to withstand wind, rain, and extreme temperatures. It even plays a role in preventing corrosion of the building’s features. Depending on how a building’s facade is designed and constructed, it can offer shade, ventilation, and sound absorption. The facade can also improve the building’s energy efficiency, as it minimizes solar gain and air leaks.
Understand Why You Need Facade Repairs
Over time, no matter how well a building’s facade is constructed, it will need facade repairs or restoration. The combination of high winds, extreme temperatures, the building settling, and natural events like hurricanes or tornadoes can affect the structural integrity of the facade. When a facade starts to deteriorate, it doesn’t offer as much structural support to the building as is needed. Keeping up with routine, minor facade repairs can halt this deterioration and prevent bigger, costlier problems. Hiring our team for professional facade repairs allows us to inspect your building for early warning signs of problems. We can also identify the key facade repair priorities, so we know exactly where to start without risking further structural damage or facade deterioration. Our facade structural repairs will protect your building’s interior from damage, as well. The building’s facade protects the interior from the elements, weather damage, air loss, UV damage, and sun glare. Prevent further problems and costly facade restoration by scheduling timely facade repairs.
