For many of our clients, there is no greater investment than their facilities; and the facility is a major component of their own business model for the showcasing of their product or service.
American Seaboard Exteriors has responded, in the role as an “essential partner”, with a preventive program to help protect this vital asset and reduce the risk of failure.
A key component of our Image of Excellence program for Hero clients is:
FacadeCheck✓ is an asset management program designed to identify potential destructive and ultimately, costly deteriorations on and within the façade or
surrounding footprint of the facility.
Exterior facades normally breakdown in three stages:
Facade materials such as window and expansion joint sealants begin to show signs of failure by cracking, discoloring or adhesion failure. Façade panel material, such as Dryvit, stucco or concrete begins to show stress cracks and/or unsightly discoloration which leads to freeze/thaw spawning.
The owner or facilities mgr. doesn’t notice the problem and over time the conditions worsen.
An eventual breakdown takes place that becomes very evident to the facilities mgr…major leaks and severe water intrusion occur at the most inopportune times and costly repairs or major remediations must be performed, resulting in unplanned expenditures. In an effort to protect our clients from the disruption of a Stage 3 event, we have developed FacadeCheck to help catch problems early on, in Stage 1. This will not only help avoid the disruptions and delays but also minimize and prioritize repair costs that might be required.
