The Importance of Window Maintenance for a Building’s Exterior

8 May2019

Nothing lasts forever, and buildings are no exception. All buildings surfaces deteriorate over time, and proper maintenance and repairs are extremely vital to the longevity of your property. Your building’s exterior protects its structure from the elements. Thus, your building’s outer surfaces are some of the most important to maintain. As window glass is one of the most vital components of a building, it is important to ensure proper window glass maintenance to keep your building in good shape.

Contact the window maintenance experts at KEVCO today to schedule service.

Why Does Exterior Building Maintenance Matter?

The physical barrier between the interior and exterior environments that enclose a building is called the envelope. The envelope is generally comprised of a series of systems that work to protect the interior space from the effects of the environment such as precipitation, wind, temperature, humidity, and ultraviolet radiation.

If the building’s exterior becomes damaged, there is a chance that the envelope has been damaged as well. This leaves your building susceptible to further structural damage as well as issues with temperature, humidity, and comfort control.

Window Maintenance for Commercial Buildings

If you’ve hired window cleaners in the past, but you’ve noticed some of your windows still appear cloudy, your glass isn’t just dirty. In the case of permanently cloudy windows, window glass restoration is a more cost-effective way to get your windows clear than window replacement.

Not only do professional window cleaning and maintenance improve your building’s appearance, but they also can make your building more energy efficient. This is because there is more to windows then just a glass panel. A window includes the seals, the caulking, and the frame of the window. If any of these items are suffering from deterioration, the building’s envelope becomes compromised. The status of your windows can be determined by a thorough examination of your building’s glass panels by a window cleaning or exterior maintenance professional.

Protect Your Building’s Exterior with Annual Inspections

Being vigilant and proactive is the name of the game in the property management business. To ensure your building’s envelope is in good condition, annual inspections of your building’s exterior should be conducted. During these inspections, a building professional should examine the following for deterioration:

  • Glass panels
  • Spandrel panels
  • Roof
  • Balconies
  • Caulking and flashing
  • Brick, masonry, and mortar joints

A professional inspection from the building services experts at KEVCO can help keep your building’s exterior and structural integrity intact, as well as keep your tenants and visitors happy and safe.
