Building exterior envelopes are composed of a multitude of design elements – walls, doors, windows, storefront systems, balconies and terraces, sidewalks, decorative items (cornices, water tables, columns, pilasters, capitals, cartouches, balustrades and trim), mortar, and caulk, as well as internal components. These elements are each composed of separate materials – brick, block, stone (marble, granite), terra cotta, cast stone, concrete, cement, various metals, differing species of wood, glass, plastics, fiberglass, and asphaltic mixtures.

Over time, due to weathering, curing, oxidation, shifting due to temperature changes, whatever the cause may be, these elements, at different items and different rates of speed, deteriorate or decay. Addressing this is where G3 and its team of seasoned professionals brings their skills to bear.

G3 commences our diagnosis of these conditions with an exterior field observation of the property, and a review of affected areas which have been noted within the building. From this, we review past experience with comparable conditions. Where necessary, our efforts extend beyond the face of the building, as deterioration of internal structures and systems (e.g. balcony supports, wall flashing, structural steel, screen walls, construction deficiency, etc.) is a regular occurrence. Tests (such as probes) are made on a selective basis to confirm suspected issues prior to the development of recommendations. The entirety of the above is ultimately combined into drawings and specifications delineating remedial measures to be undertaken.
