REPAIRS AND REHABILITATIONNovember 24, 2022
All structures and materials are degraded with time. The only thing which varies is the time scale of the degradation. In the case of a building structure, it is important that it is designed for a life time. Throughout its lifetime, the structure should also have a high level of safety to resist the forces and loads to which it is subjected and the environment to which it is exposed
As the title says, we need to protect our structure from severe damages. Weather changes can also bring damage to the structure’s roof, foundation, interior, exterior and more if not properly maintained and protected. Reasons to protect our building are as follows:
Protection against extreme weather: Changing weather conditions may cause greater damage to the building structure. Especially rain, storm, flood can cause serious structural damage. Any damage to the building make you spend more money in maintaining the structure. A regular inspection and maintenance will prepare your building for extreme weather conditions.
Optimal Safety: A damaged structure especially roof and bathrooms can be dangerous for people living in the home. Usually, a little damage to the structure increases into bigger problems if left unchecked and untreated.
Reduced Water Damage: Water damage is common due to blocked pipes. Heavy storms, rain and winds can bring dead leaves, dust and moisture that may block the drains and gutters. If regular inspection and cleaning are not done, these will lead to the accumulation of water and structure deterioration. Water is moved through a structure in any number of ways including hydrostatic pressure, capillary action, wind / air movements, surface tension and natural gravity. By keeping a routine maintenance schedule and proper waterproofing, protective technique will increase the life of any structure; thus maintains its property value.
Improved Aesthetics: There is no other happiness than a well maintained structure. A well maintained structure may help in increasing the value of your property.
Saves Your Money: By proper maintenance and inspection, you can perfectly keep your building safe and thus saves a lot money.
Structural integrity is not just a case of good design, it needs to be maintained for the life of a structure. This requires inspection and maintenance at certain periods. Failures of building functions can range from defects in single components to extensive deficiencies. So, Engineers ensure structures are safe, reliable, and perform their designed function throughout the structure’s lifetime.
