Prioritizing Building Envelope Maintenance to Minimize the Impact of Natural Disasters

Prepare Your Building Envelope for When Natural Disasters Happen

It seems to no longer be about if, but when a natural disaster will occur. From fires to floods to even the threat of earthquakes across the coastal region of BC. Natural disasters are happening more frequently, and being prepared is imperative.

Which is where your building envelope stability comes in. This is what separates the inside of your structure from the outside, with sub-systems enveloped within such as – heating, cooling and ventilating equipment, as well as plumbing and electrical systems.

Various factors can affect the performance of the building envelope overall, and ensuring it is built to keep out temperature extremes, moisture, high winds – and other such elements, will be your best defense against deterioration, decay, structural failure and costly repairs.

What Does Building Envelope Maintenance Oversee?

A complete building envelope includes such things as…

  • External Paint and Protective Wood Stain on Exposed Wood
  • The Roof and Overhangs
  • Residential Windows and Exterior Doors
  • Sealant, Cladding and Exhaust Ducts
  • The Foundation
  • Decks and Balconies

The Risk of Not Maintaining the Integrity of a Building Envelope

As mentioned in a previous blog

“If a building envelope is not treated as a complete system, individual components can be easily compromised during targeting repairs. By ignoring one aspect of your building envelope, inevitably your put the entire structure in potential jeopardy, which is easily avoidable with complete system care.”
