The exterior of every structure shall be maintained in good repair, structurally sound, and sanitary so as not to pose a threat to the public health, safety, or welfare. The owner shall keep the exterior of all premises and every structure thereon, including, but not limited to, walls, roofs, cornices, chimneys, drains, towers, porches, landings, fire escapes, stairs, windows, doors, awnings and marquees, in good repair. All surfaces thereof shall be kept painted or protected by other approved coatings or materials where necessary for the preservation of the property and the avoidance of blight or an adverse influence on adjoining properties. All exterior surfaces shall be maintained free of broken glass, loose shingles, crumbling stone or brick, peeling paint, or other conditions reflective of deterioration or inadequate maintenance, to the end that the property itself may be preserved safely, fire hazards eliminated, and adjoining properties and neighborhoods protected from the blighting influence of decreased property values.
