Building Facade Inspection SERVICES

 In Quebec, multi-level parking structures are subjected to the harsh and harmful impact of frost-defrost cycles, de-icing salts, and many other abrasive conditions during winter months. This is why, since 2013 under Loi 122, la Régie du Bâtiment du Québec (RBQ), all facades of buildings with 5 or more storeys and their garages, as well as all the elements attached to them, must be inspected every 5 years. The methodology for this study is based on the guidelines in the guides entitled “Explanatory guide to facade maintenance requirements” and “ASTM E2270”.

Inspection elements

A building facade inspection includes visual and tactile observations, designed to detect physical deficiencies, and the presence of apparent defects or materials that will damage the physical condition of the structure. Adhering to a strict methodology that complies with federal and provincial guidelines, the report will contain the following:


Photographic appendix


The location of any defect and/or observed deficiencies


A description of repair/remedial works required to remedy detected issues


A summary confirming that the parking/facade does not present a dangerous condition, and if does, confirming that the property owner has been advised of the conditions
