Defender Shield

Proactive Cleaning, Inspection & Maintenance - Building Envelope Management, Simplified
Fight back against the weather.

A proactive cadence of seasonal cleaning, inspection, maintenance, and asset management actions will keep your buildings resilient and protected.

Maintenance work is performed during each scheduled service visit and focuses on repairing small deficiencies that can be immediately fixed. For example field technicians may patch small holes in an EPDM roof, caulk open seams, replace a broken slate tile or wood shingle, fix a bracket, install new flashing, etc.

Experienced technicians will survey and document the condition of your building envelope systems and components using a proprietary field software application that streamlines and automates the data collection process.

Defender Shield℠ prevents minor issues from becoming major problems by taking proactive action. With our program you will experience:

  • Improved building envelope performance
  • Reduced repairs and failures
  • Extended building envelope asset life
  • Lowered risks of hazards that can cause personal injury and property damage

Hazard Defender℠

Predictive Maintenance to Secure Your Investments

Protecting the backbone of your commercial property requires more than just occasional checks—it demands proactive defense against hazards that can compromise your building’s integrity. Enter Hazard Defender. Our solution doesn’t just manage; it actively prevents the escalation of problems that can shorten the lifespan of your building systems.

Hazard Defender℠ is a proprietary solution to catalog building envelope assets and streamline management of repairs & replacement through intelligent prioritization based upon a combination of data + insights.

Through meticulous, regular inspections, we identify potential vulnerabilities in your building’s envelope. This foresight ensures you don’t merely react to problems but anticipate and prevent them. With our comprehensive building envelope management system, every maintenance action is not just recorded—it’s strategized.

Collect, catalog and track survey information in the WS Aiken SURESight℠ database for asset management and decision-making purposes.

Analysis is done post inspection using WS Aiken’s Hazard Levels rating system.


Extremely dangerous conditions that present immediate risk of injury from falling objects, illness from mold, or severe water intrusion and destruction of valuable assets



Hazardous conditions that risk damage to building structure from falling objects or serious moisture saturation



Damage that, if unchecked, will become a level 4 or 5 hazard; imminent risk of moisture infiltration that can shorten the life of the roof



Deterioration, debris build-up, and other maintenance issues that will worsen if unchecked; inadequate protection against moisture that can shorten the life of the roof



Routine wear-and-tear, seasonal build-up of debris; need for regular cleaning and maintenance to protect against moisture

A 3-year plan is created for asset managers to prioritize their maintenance spend. Projects are planned in advance to cover budget, ideal timing, and optimal outcomes.

Efficient asset management requires frequent monitoring and inspection of assets and individual components to ensure their physical and functional fitness, and to identify the items that are most worthy of the limited funds for capital renewal.

Beyond just maintenance, think building lifespan. As a marker of forward-thinking building management, we empower you to monitor and refine your preventative maintenance plan, highlighting any inefficiencies tied to envelope issues. The result? Lower costs and smooth operations.

Our SURESight℠ system provides instant access to every service record and contract detail, eliminating any guesswork. And with ever-changing regulatory landscapes, our deep knowledge keeps you in constant compliance.

Invest in the future of your building. Ensure longevity, boost energy efficiency, and prevent the unseen problems that can erode your property’s value. With Hazard Defender and our unparalleled expertise, your building isn’t just preserved—it’s future-proofed.
