This research is about Building Inspection, Building Maintenance and Technical Standard Inspection. It also analyzes the effectiveness of the technical standards that support the services of building maintenance. This research has shown that although building inspection is consolidated as a building maintenance tool, it is not mentioned by ABNT standard 5674. The research confirmed that most of the managers do not prepare a building maintenance plan and do not use building inspection as a tool for building maintenance, leading the buildings to the precocious obsolescence of building elements. This research presents a case study of a building inspection method, applied to a residential building which demonstrates effectiveness, and proved to be a consensus tool towards the inspection building practice. This method guides the managers across the interventions required by building maintenance. It aims at preserving the building life span and its constructive elements. Index Terms  - Building Inspection, Building Maintenance, Civil Engineering, Technical Standards.
