Facade Inspection & Repairs

Building exteriors experience deterioration and degradation that can become a safety hazard over time. Facade inspections can identify potentially dangerous situations, such as falling hazards of loose building materials, deterioration, and failure of the building envelope seal. As a result of this damage, pathways can be created that allow for water to enter a building. Facade inspections also allow for these pathways to be identified before they escalate into larger issues. The Philadelphia Building Code specifically requires that buildings six+ stories, or over 60′ tall, complete periodic facade inspections.

Premier has extensive experience accessing building exteriors and completing facade inspections, which can save you time and money. When Premier leads your inspection, they will coordinate with licensed engineers and can immediately mobilize for work. They are able to complete “make safe” repairs as the contracted company with access to the building exterior.

Additionally, for building repairs with longer timelines, Premier can project repair costs and create a long-term plan based on the assessment and your budget. Give us a call to see how we can help you plan and complete your facade repairs.
