Façades - Maintenance and inspection - Required by RBQ (BILL 122)

Buildings require of their owners the application of a thorough and consistent program of preventive maintenance. This is particularly true of façades of high buildings which are exposed to adverse weather.
 
This is why the façades of all buildings of 5 storeys and more coming under the Regulation must now be subject to a program of periodic verification and maintenance.

It is mandatory that they be maintained so as to be free from any defect which could jeopardize safety or contribute to the development of dangerous conditions

 
The owner must obtain from an Engineer a verification report certifying that the façades of the owner’s building do not show signs of any dangerous condition.
 

Frequency of the verification reports

If the building is aged 10 years or more from the starting date of the law (March 18 2013), the report has to be issued as follow:

  • more than 45 years of age, a report must be produced before March 18, 2015;
  • between 25 and 45 years of age, a report must be produced before March 18, 2016;
  • between 15 and 25 years of age, a report must be produced before March 18, 2017;
  • between 10 and 15 years of age, a report must be produced before March 18, 2018.
  • Thereafter, the owner shall obtain a verification report of the façades every 5 years.
