Since the late 1970's, building facade problems have plagued building owners and managers probably more than during any previous period. Barber & Hoffman's experience in this area is extensive and has become a leader in facade restoration in northeast Ohio and has consulted throughout the United States. We have analyzed causes for facade distress and/or consulted on repairs. In the process, Barber & Hoffman engineers have become thoroughly familiar with the way these materials react to nature's stimuli and how they interact with various supporting structures. Barber & Hoffman's services vary from determining the cause of a particular problem to providing a complete facade condition survey with appropriate testing and analyses. Repair details may be developed and construction drawings and specifications may be prepared.

Barber & Hoffman is prepared to act as the prime professional, working directly with building owners and managers, or to serve as consultants to architects or contractors.
