The façade is one of the most important elements of your building’s design and integrity. The word “façade” comes from the French — and literally translated, it means “face” or “frontage.” In construction engineering, your face sets the tone for your entire structure.
At the same time, your façade is another design feature that can become corrupt through:
- Poor initial design
- Extreme weather
- Improper upkeep
