As experts in facade maintenance, the team at Apex Facades understands everything there is to know about facade maintenance. We have years of experience conducting facade inspections and formulating strategies to mitigate facade deterioration and potential safety concerns. 

From our experience we know that facade repairs can be costly, but here are a few ways you can save money. 

Regular inspections

Carrying out regular facade inspections and audits are essential if you want to save money on facade maintenance. Regular inspections will keep you abreast of any maintenance issues and often bring them to your attention before they get too serious, or expensive. 

At Apex Facades we use rope access to ensure our inspections cause minimal disruption and even offer UAV drone inspections when it is appropriate. This allows us to inspect every area of the building’s facade and effectively map the building during routine inspections and identify if any issues have arisen. 

Regular cleaning

Facades on high rise buildings need to be regularly cleaned, not only so they look great, but to help prevent deterioration and other damage. Pollutants, dirt and certain weather conditions can have a detrimental effect on the facade of high rise buildings and regular cleaning can help avoid expensive repairs.

Always use an insured, licensed contractor  

On occasion we’ve seen building owners/managers lose money because they didn’t engage an experienced, licensed contractor to carry out their facade maintenance. 

Any facade maintenance or inspections should be completed by an experienced and insured contractor. This will ensure they have the relevant qualifications and cover to safely complete the job. 

All Apex Facade technicians are experts in their field and are fully licensed and compliant and assessed inline with the IRATA International Training, Assessment and Certification Scheme (TACS). 

We have also achieved certification in Environmental ISO 14001:2015, Safety ISO 45001:2018 and Quality ISO 9001:2015

Apex Facades has specialist high risk public liability and professional indemnity insurance to ensure if in a terrible instance things went wrong, we are fully insured.

Carrying out maintenance when it’s needed

While it may seem like a bother at the time to fix small maintenance issues, it is one of the most efficient ways to save money in the long run. When you don’t carry out maintenance issues when they are identified, they can grow into larger and more expensive problems over time. 

Don’t always go with the cheapest option

The cheapest quote doesn’t always translate to the best service. Of course we recommend comparing prices, however the most affordable option isn’t always the best. If they aren’t using quality products you may find yourself fixing the same problem over and over again. 

At Apex our expert technicians only use the best quality products that meet Australian Standards. We have built strong relationships with Australian suppliers to ensure the best service possible.
