Building Envelope Restoration

Building Envelope Restoration

A building envelope should protect you from external elements such as extreme temperature, moisture, dust and wind. If it doesn’t, EPS Westcoast can help.

A building envelope is the exterior of a building; it is made up of the windows, doors, walls, foundation, floor, ceiling and roof and is the barrier between the conditioned indoor environment and the imposing elements of the outdoor environment. The envelope should protect you from external elements such as extreme temperature, moisture, dust and wind.

The envelope should also be constructed to ensure durability and not allow for these external elements to become trapped within the walls, which will almost certainly cause decay and deterioration. This is especially true for wood frame construction in a mild, wet climate such as Coastal British Columbia.

Working with engineers, consultants, building owners/managers, strata corporations and property owners, EPS Westcoast is committed to repairing building envelope failures and preventing reoccurrence.
