A building’s Façade – walls, windows, doors, storefronts, curtain walls, panels and other building elements – provide structural and aesthetic components of your weatherproofing exterior.
Foresight can provide a variety of services to resolve deterioration and performance issues that can affect your building. Whether it is new construction or an existing building, our goal is to find a solution that fits your budget and needs.
Architects, Developers, and General Contractors
Foresight can provide coordination of roof and building envelope systems to ensure your design adequately addresses moisture prevention measures for the sequencing, handling, and installation during construction.
Property Owners, Property Managers, and Contractors
Facade services can help you evaluate, quantify, solve and include surveys designed to assess the overall condition of the building for maintenance issues, renovation planning, due diligence evaluations, forensic problem solving, water infiltration testing, and heat loss determination.
From leaks to heat loss, hiring Foresight as your FaCade consultant will provide you the knowledge to make an informed decision regarding your building performance.
An inspection by Foresight will take the entire building waterproofing system into consideration to find the point of infiltration. We will determine problems, needs, and give you repair options to correct those issues. Detailed reports outline existing conditions with 5-year budget estimate for repairs. Reports can be utilized to create maintenance schedules and plan for future expenses.
