A primary example of the need for a façade audit is for cladding that may be combustible and needs to be replaced. A façade audit also identifies if there are any other underlying issues to be addressed, such as water damage or concrete spalling.
Once a façade audit is completed, a remediation plan can be implemented to rectify the underlying issues.
We recommend to have a façade audit at least every 3 to 5 years to ensure the exterior of the building is protecting its structure. An audit can identify issues, such as water ingress, that otherwise undetected, can cause significant structural damage to a building.
