5 Signs That Your Building is Failing

To businesses, their building are absolutely vital. They play an important role in their business and allow potential customers to physically see what they have to offer.

Making sure that your building is in good condition is a full time job. Exactly why organisations employ facilities and maintenance managers. These 5 signs that your building is failing could be the difference between saving your business unit and it being completely demolished.

Cracks – As a maintenance manager or site instructor, it is your responsibility to ensure that a regular building audit is completed. The results of the audit will enable you to highlight areas for improvement and areas that need to be repaired as a matter of urgency.

Cracks should not be allowed to deteriorate over time. What seems like a small issue can quickly become a major concern for your business. One insignificant crack could lead to a major one, which will then result in a wall needing to be complete re-plastered, costing you and the business money.

Leaks – These are usually found in the roof-space in distribution warehouses or any location that contains a flat roof. Over time, especially in the UK, the adverse weather can lead to the corrosion of fittings, something that I will discuss in more detail later in this article.

Once these fittings become damaged or completely broken, they leave holes and areas for water to enter. However, leaks can also be caused by faulty pieces of equipment. If you have a commercial boiler that has been running for 12 years, it may have developed a fault.

If you do find a leak in your building, make sure that you identify the source of the problem and have it repaired immediately or as soon as possible. Roof cladding repair companies are usually a good choice to look at if you have a leaking roof panel.

Corrosion – As I mentioned above, adverse weather is the main offender of corrosion. This happens when there has been a lot of wet weather around a building and the metal fittings have not been cleaned or dried correctly.

When there are been a downpour of rain and the roof on a warehouse is flat, the water simply sits there and has nowhere to go. The result of this is that the roof fittings are submerged in the stagnant water and the internal properties are exposed.

The best solution is to contact a commercial roofing contractor and arrange for the fittings and a drainage route to be fitted.

Displacement – Cladding panels and architectural panels are popular amongst modern buildings. However, some contractors do not complete the installation of them correctly. Displacement occurs when the building panels have been incorrectly installed or the panels have moved due to structural movements.

This is an important fault for any building manager. Displacement issues need to be actioned as soon as possible to avoid further damages or structural complications.

Regular Maintenance – If you find that your building is having to have regular maintenance completed, then there is a cause for concern. It’s certainly worth discussing with your maintenance team and evaluating the maintenance reports to see what the causes of these issue are. If they are repetitive, you can look at changing the procedures that are currently in place.

Chris Graham is a heavily respected business owner in the construction and paint supply industries. His organisation, Elevation Maintenance provide state of the art Cladding Panel Repairs for business owners through-out the UK.
