The Importance of Balcony Repair

What may seem a small issue on the outside of your property could actually lead to more significant damage on the inside.

The Importance of Balcony Repair

Whether it is undertaken in isolation or part of a larger project, balcony repairs may range from a relatively simple retiling, to a more complex waterproofing project designed to rectify a leaking balcony.

Leaking balconies are both relatively common and extremely serious because of their potential to cause substrate damage and water ingress into the interior of the property. Additionally, leaking balconies can represent an extreme liability due to the safety risk they pose to tenants. Some of the risks of leaving a leaking balcony untreated include:

  • Water penetration of the surrounding external walls
  • Visible water penetration in dwellings below or adjacent to the balcony
  • Damage to electrical systems causing power outages or dangerous charges
  • A rare, yet highly dangerous balcony collapse

Remedial staff are experienced in identifying the origin of all leaks, implementing the latest waterproofing technologies,and finally restoring the balcony to a safe and presentable condition. If your balcony contains planter boxes, we also offer specialised planter box replacement services to deliver a holistic solution for your balcony.
