Façade Inspections and Building Maintenance

At Heightsafe, we understand the critical importance of proactive building maintenance, especially when it comes to your façade. Our dedicated team excels in performing thorough Façade Inspections and Building Maintenance services, designed to identify and rectify minor issues before they escalate into costly repairs.

Last Updated: 9th January 2024

The Importance of Proactive Maintenance

Building and Façade inspections play a pivotal role in preserving the structural integrity and aesthetics of your property. Incorporating these inspections into your annual Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedule is a proactive strategy that can significantly reduce the likelihood of expensive reactive maintenance down the line.

Identifying Potential Issues

Our experienced specialists possess the expertise needed to detect early signs of wear and tear, allowing you to schedule necessary budgetary expenses in advance. By conducting regular inspections, we can identify materials approaching the end of their life-span, enabling you to plan for replacements and repairs strategically.

Preventing Major Capital Expenses

Correcting minor problems before they escalate is key to extending the longevity of individual building components. Rushed repairs often lead to unsatisfactory results, making it essential to address issues promptly during routine inspections. This approach not only safeguards your investment but also minimises the risk of major capital expenses.

Addressing the Unseen Threats

What may seem like a minor imperfection, such as an open joint at a parapet cap, can lead to significant water ingress. If left unattended, water migration down a building can result in rusting steel frames, damp insulation, and displaced wall surfacing. Our specialists have the knowledge and experience to spot these seemingly insignificant issues and address them before they compromise the overall integrity of your structure.

Frequency of Inspection

To ensure optimal protection, Heightsafe recommends incorporating Building and Façade Inspections into your PPM schedule biannually. This proactive approach allows us to stay ahead of potential problems, keeping your building watertight and secure against the elements.
