Energetic Efficiency: What There Is to Know
First, the building envelope is made up of the walls, roof, foundations, doors and windows. It is the outer layer that covers the building and that separates the interior living space from the external environment, both below and above ground.
The building envelope is a significant component if you are considering improving the energy efficiency of your home. Many older buildings have air leakage problems, because of areas in the shell that are not well insulated. This is why energy costs for heating and air conditioning are so high.
As with any type of renovation, increasing the energy efficiency of the building envelope requires careful planning. Above all, it is necessary to define the areas you want to improve.
Restoration of Concrete Structures
Whether it is through the restoration of a building facade or a balcony membrane, or any other type of building repair, Béton Concept AM will make every effort to direct you towards the ideal solutions.
Here are our areas of expertise for the maintenance of your concrete buildings and structures:
Precast concrete panels
Even the most experienced precasters, who follow all procedures and stages of panel design, cannot create the “perfect” panel. Repair is therefore an inevitable step for every building.
Inspection of Building Facades – Bill 122
If your building has over five floors, it is essential to call upon professionals, such as Béton Concept AM, to conduct a thorough inspection of your building structure. The building is subject to Bill 122 for maintenance and inspection of building facades.

Primary Causes Of Foundation Problems
Clay soils are predominant in this region and cause most of the foundation issues in commercial building repairs. We act like a sponge soaking up large quantities of water and expanding. This in turn exerts enormous pressure on the foundation. The result:
Cracked foundations or walls
Windows and doors that stick
Bowed basement walls
Separating or leaning chimney
Our repairing is characterized by; cracking around windows or vents, deteriorating mortar and cracked floors. Landscaping absorbs water, especially the trees, creating an uneven water situation or excessive dryness, causing more contraction.
