Balcony Repair or Replacement

Safeguard your balconies from deterioration through the right waterproofing measures.

The Importance of Waterproofing

Ensuring your buildings are properly waterproofed is crucial for maintaining their structural integrity. Without adequate waterproofing, your property is vulnerable to damage that can lead to costly structural repairs.

Balcony Waterproofing

Balconies without proper waterproofing are particularly at risk. Once water intrusion signs become evident, it's essential to address the damage immediately to prevent further structural issues. Moreover, it's not just the affected balconies that need attention; all balconies in the community should be adequately waterproofed to avoid similar problems.

Preventing Structural Damage

Water has a way of seeping into building materials, causing significant structural damage over time. This is often most noticeable at the junctures where different building elements meet, such as where walls connect to floors or columns. Visible cracks in these areas are telltale signs of water damage. Relying solely on caulking as a waterproofing measure is insufficient for these critical areas.

Signs of failure include:

  • Cracks in the floor
  • Ceilings below the balconies showing signs of water intrusion, such as staining and rotting materials
  • Bowing of beams supporting the balcony
  • Posts and/or columns showing wood rot, especially at the bottom base where they meet the concrete
  • Water sitting on the edge of the balcony where the screen frame or railing meet the floor
