—The objective of this study was to substantiate the
importance of inspection and preliminary tests before the
interventions of restoration of historic building. To do this, set
up a building listed as Brazilian historical heritage for a case
study. Through inspection was possible to identify the
proliferation of biofilm as pathology with greater incidence and
testing allowed the knowledge of the characteristics of the
materials of the facades. Thus, the combination of the two
processes was essential for the preparation of the restoration
project, indicating the most appropriate therapies to types of
—Inspection, facades, pathology, restoration.
