Why you should give your property a thorough cleaning this season.

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 issues for your property.  To nip serious issues in the bud, you should take some time this spring to thoroughly clean and inspect your property’s exterior.

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 and façade restoration specialist to identify issues such as the following:

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

By taking the time to properly clean and repair your building façade this spring, you can reduce your chances for unexpected repair costs and potential liability issues.  Are you looking for assistance with maintaining and repairing your property’s façade?  Then turn to the construction experts that you can trust.  Contact Nikki Fox at Parkwest General Contractors at Nikki@ParkwestGC.com for assistance with all your building renovation and construction needs today.
