Chezcore, Inc. has the experience necessary to perform thorough
exterior facade inspections. Using the proper equipment, Chezcore,
Inc. can access any building and perform an up close inspection.
A thorough "hands on" inspection allows them to assess
the true conditions of the buildings exterior skin. In some cases,
pieces of the facade are removed to expose the steel structure to
determine its integrity.
Typical conditions are photographed and documented.
After the physical inspection is completed, a written report is
developed describing the conditions found. Repair recommendations
and related cost estimates are also provided. From these documents
budgets can be developed and work phases proposed.
Due to the nature of restoration work and the
many unknowns that can be discovered during any project, Chezcore,
Inc. can also perform a "Test Drop" approach to assessing
a buildings' exterior condition. That is to access a section of
wall (approximately forty foot wide, capstone to grade) and perform
all of the necessary restoration work required within the "Test
Drop" wall area. The "Test Drop" repairs can be performed
for a fixed, not to exceed cost. This is based on the conditions
found and the true work scope as performed. A detailed repair recommendation
with related costs for the balance of the buildings exterior is
With this approach, the owner has a true assessment
of the typical deteriorated conditions present throughout, as well
as unknowns exposed. Because work is actually performed, a true
understanding of the repair extent is known and a section of the
wall area is completed. Chezcore, Inc. is registered and certified
with the City of Detroit, to perform city required exterior building
facade inspections, per the Detroit Facade Ordinance Code, for buildings
