The Masonry Society’s “Guide for Condition Assessment of Masonry Facades” (Guide) is a living document that describes methodology for inspection and assessment of masonry facades. The Guide is useful to building owners, architects, engineers, and building officials as a valuable tool for masonry façade evaluations related to façade ordinances, restoration and repairs, maintenance programs, and due diligence reports. Starting with a discussion of the factors that affect masonry performance, the Guide continues through the process of masonry façade inspection and assessment with a flow chart and outline of the various tasks and elements of a façade assessment. The Appendix includes special attention on the topics of “Distress Common to Terra Cotta Facades” and “Assessment Techniques of In-Place Masonry”.
