The word facade originally comes from the Italian word “facciata”, and is defined as the outside or all of the external faces of a building. Along with the roof, it is one of the most important elements of a building as a primary barrier against external weather element that could damage the structural integrity of the structure.
Common defects/damages in building facades includes cracking, staining/discolouration, sealant failures, efflorescence, rising dampness/water penetration, corrosion, buckling/deflection, tile/plaster delamination. These defects/damages builds up over time, extensive deterioration hurts the value of the building and can become a safety hazard. It’s also more difficult and more expensive to fix the longer the defects/ damages were left un-rectified.
