Typical questions related to property analysis:
Is the property a likely target?
Properties with a higher risk to be vandalized are for example schools, youth clubs and public buildings.
Building materials used?
Building materials that are porous (e.g. natural stones) or not resistant to solvents and/or acids (e.g. thermal insulation system EIFS) are also vulnerable to graffiti or improper graffiti removal.
Is the facade of the property easily accessible?
Facades of properties that are easily accessible (e.g. direct access from the street) and from which graffiti artists can escape easily are more likely to be defaced than facades that are hidden away or fenced in.
Does the surface of the facade provide a canvas?
Privileged targets are eye catching facades that are plain and bright, have a smooth surface and ensure high visibility.
Does the property offer high public visibility?
A graffiti vandal is striving to be famous and wants his „work of art“ to be seen by as many people as possible (e.g. pedestrian zone, downtown areas, train stations and bus stops, freeways).
