The City of Chicago Department of Buildings requires all buildings, over 7 stories in height, to undergo a critical facade inspection every 4 to 12 years. These inspections must be completed by a licensed architect or engineer.
BTR inspects all types of masonry buildings from single family residences to multifamily housing associations. Here is a checklist of what our estimators look for when we perform a critical inspection:
BRICK / CONCRETE BLOCK WALLS
A written report will be generated per customer’s request which will include photo documentation of suspect areas. Inspection fees vary and depend on the size of the property, time spent documenting, and any necessary rigging. Fees will be credited back to the customer if BTR performs the related recommended repairs.
