Facade Inspection

Grove Masonry Maintenance, Inc.’s business relies upon adhering to the inspection codes issued by the City of Chicago when performing a project. Therefore, it is crucial for our clients and potential clients to understand the rules and regulations regarding inspection. Within this section you will be able to find information relating to inspection codes.

The City of Chicago issued rules and regulations for exterior wall maintenance to take steps in providing public safety throughout Chicago. Buildings of at least six stories or 80 feet or more in height are required to comply with these regulations. Critical exams are done every four years. Ongoing inspections (short forms) are required for each of the three intervening years. The initial critical exam for a building built prior to 1950 must be completed by November 1, 2002. The initial critical exam for a building built after January 1, 1950 must be completed by November 1, 2004.

Details of the rules and regulations for the Exterior Wall Maintenance program can be found at http://www.ci.chi.il.us/Buildings/BuildingCode/ExteriorRules.html. This Web site is an excellent way to acquire information on the Exterior Wall Ordinance. A copy of the ordinance can also be obtained at the City Clerk’s Office.
