Upon completion of the inspection, our General Contractors NYC in bronx ny, brooklyn ny, queens ny, manhattan ny ensures the entire building should file a technical report with each and every department of the buildings classifying facade elements as either safe, safe with a maintenance and repair program. The facade elements which are unsafe must be immediately addressed and repaired with the period of 30 days.
The law also demands that the inspection of appurtenances such as lighting fixtures, guardrails, signs, air conditioners, window and any other others objects attached to the wall should be made on time that might fall if poorly supported due to the weak strength. There are more than 12,000 building in NYC which is subject to LL11 inspection requirements.
