This article analyzes the equation for calculating the residual resource of building structures by their age (actual or chronological). The main attention in this article is given to the size of the maximum service life. A number of methods are given for determining the ultimate service life of building structures, their advantages and disadvantages. Based on the analysis, the authors proposed two methods for assigning the final value of the maximum service life. An algorithm has also been developed for the joint assessment of the obtained values of the ultimate service life by various methods. An improvement of the equation for calculating the residual resource by the age of the structures is proposed, which will allow both eliminating the disadvantages that each method individually has and minimizing their negative impact on the accuracy of calculating the residual resource.
