Does your community perform consistent spot repairs? For years, we've cautioned clients about the perils of getting trapped in expensive spot repair cycles, as these spot repairs do not correct the underlying cause of the problem, and can even accelerate the deterioration of the building envelope. 


Unfortunately, many condominiums were built during the housing boom when labor was scarce, installation methods were inconsistent, and building materials were often chosen for cost over quality. The harsh reality is that if you live in a wood-sided townhouse condominium built before 1995, the time for spot repairs has most likely passed.


In this guide, we've drawn from our 35+ years of building envelope planning expertise to detail the truth about spot repairs and exactly how they may be harming your building envelope.


We've also included helpful advice regarding the best way to determine the remaining useful life of your building envelope so you can avoid poor investments and make the right long-term building envelope decisions for your community.
