Priorities for repair of masonry structures

  1. Structural or safety – where there is potential collapse and/or danger of masonry or fixtures falling from the building.
  2. Water penetration through the wall envelope – damage to contents, equipment, interior finishes, and/or the wall envelope from water penetration.
  3. Water penetration into the wall envelope – potential rapid deterioration of the wall envelope from water penetration without leakage into the building.
  4. Excessive energy consumption or loss of comfort – excessive heat loss or gain.
  5. General deterioration, adverse appearance and nuisances – age deterioration, graffiti or pollution remnants and insect invasion.
