Building Envelope Repair and Restoration
Building Envelope Restoration describes the preservation, repair, and restoration of all areas of the building envelope. The ‘building envelope’ is the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building. Water, air, and thermal changes affect the integrity of the building and can compromise the building.
While the roof is a critical component of the building envelope, the building envelope includes wall systems, joints, flashings, openings such as windows and doors, and water protection systems. Restoring the building envelope includes examining and repairing these various parts of the system to maintain watertight integrity.
