Our Services: Building Envelope Surveys, Aerial Access, Condition + Budget Reports, Restoration, Consulting + Project Management, Leak Sourcing, Permits, Barricades, Preventative Maintenance

We make building envelope maintenance easy as 1, 2, 3!

Survey: Understand the Issues 

We determine existing conditions, investigate specific issues that, in turn, inform repair, restoration, or maintenance needs.
A thorough building envelope investigation familiarizes us with your property. Then, our team — comprised of seasoned specialists with
extensive consulting experience — outlines issues of concern using custom software technology available only to our clients. We’re able
to access all locations via our aerial lift trucks, state-of-the-art overhead protection, barricades, and ability to expedite building, sidewalk, and
parking permits needed to get up-close and personal. Before working, we even provide detailed Condition and Budget Reporting so
informed discussions can take place prior to putting a plan into action.

Restore: Revive the Intended Function 

We restore the building envelope to its intended functionality, leading to proactive upkeep and maintenance. While we have the
ability to assist with managing contractors already hired, we offer clients the more desirable option of engaging our very own
OSHA-30 certified restoration crews and project management professionals, adept at waterproofing, masonry restoration, roofing,
carpentry and custom millwork, specialty coatings, garage, balcony, and concrete restoration, and metal fabrication to see the job through.

Maintain: Proactively Manage the Building Envelope 

Popular among property owners and managers, our Preventative Maintenance Program sets in place long-term plans to cover immediate fixes as indicated by
our condition survey reports, but also items of future concern. In this phase, we’re your proactive crew, consistently mitigating future failures and leaks.

Building Owners and
Property Managers

Our Preventative Maintenance Program
resolvesproperty issues detected. 

After we survey a property, we support building owners and
property managersby pinpointing specific issues of concern
within the building envelope — from the roof to the foundation
and everywhere in between.

We dissect each issue to determine the appropriate fixes
and materials required based on the problem(s) at hand,
their priority level, and even help determine a budget to
efficiently address each item over the course of a year.
