A building envelope is more than just a grouping of materials and components that protects a home from the elements. It’s a system that works together to keep you comfortable inside, by keeping the weather outside. Though it can often go unnoticed, an aging and ineffective building envelope can allow water and wind to penetrate the exterior walls of your home, leading to costly and premature repairs. What might seem like peeling siding paint or a roof leak could actually be a sign your home’s envelope is failing.
A building envelope is a complex system that requires specialized knowledge and expertise to properly maintain, repair, replace and restore. Communities seeking to understand how today’s maintenance headaches might be creating unexpected future problems rely on the guidance of building envelope specialists to ensure a holistic and preventive solution for the long term.
