Degradation of facades
of existing buildings, can have several causes: from weather conditions to poor quality of building materials, construction errors and so on.
Each triggering cause can result in different surfaces damages, such as: chromatic alteration, superficial deposit of material, disintegration or detachment of the material, cracking, encrustation, wall pulverization or swelling.
The best solution for degraded facades can only be found after establishing the triggering cause of deterioration.
Once detected the origin of the problem there are specific solutions to be applied.
To restore the façade of an historic building - which involves in-depth knowledge about the building history, the materials used to build it and so on- we will certainly use a different solution then the one we will adopt to treat damp walls in a condominium.
In the last case we must first understand the cause of moisture: rising damp, moisture condensation or infiltration, accidental moisture or humidity due to failure of the embankment.
