Take care of your building’s façade this spring.

Over time, exposure to water, bad weather, and building movement can cause your building’s façade to deteriorate.  This, in turn, can create safety and maintenance concerns for your property.  To nip serious issues in the bud, you should take some time to take care of your building’s façade this spring.

Spring is an ideal time to clean and survey your building’s façade because you can capitalize on clear weather conditions.  Additionally, undertaking this maintenance task in spring will allow you to address any issues that result from exposure to extreme winter weather.  During your inspection, work with a masonry or façade restoration specialist to identify issues such as the following:

  • Cracking
  • Efflorescence
  • Spalling
  • Control joint failure
  • Sealer/caulk failure

By keeping up with routine building façade maintenance, you can protect your property from issues such and leaks and water damage.  Properly washing your building’s exterior will uncover hidden damages and will ensure that built-up grime and debris does not affect the aesthetic of your property.  Popular cleaning techniques include:

  • Pressure washing
  • Wet aggregate blasting
  • Hot water stream usage
  • Chemical usage
  • Soda blasting
  • Poultice usage
  • Glass bead usage
  • Sponge blasting

This is how and why you should take care of your building’s façade this spring.  Are you looking for assistance with maintaining and repairing your commercial property’s exterior this season?  If so, then contact the experts at Proforma Construction today.  Serving Pleasanton and the surrounding California area, our highly-trained team is ready to make your commercial construction dreams a reality.
