Saving the money and less energy wasting

Longer building life with maximum performance

Gives safe work environment

Prevent the process of decay and degradation from the climate or general usage

Maintained structural stability and safety.


More Installation cost of equipments

Decreases the life span of asset

Skilled worker are required

It deceases the performance of structure and trends to more decay of structure

The maintenance operation is less safety for workers and more possibility of accidents and damages

Possibility to increases the self weight of structure
