Whether it’s part of a home or an office, balconies allow for brief, quiet retreats and unparalleled views. It isn’t enough to just expect balconies to continue doing what they do forever. Naturally they will require upkeep or protection. One way to ensure your balcony remains safe and usable is to have experts apply balcony membrane waterproofing.
Why waterproof your balcony?
Balconies are very often exposed to the elements, and this exposure often presents itself if the form of water and moisture damage. If balconies are leaking, it often leads to greater problems down the track. The worst-case scenario is the balcony collapsing, which can result in damage to the building, injury and even death, all of which are very financially and emotionally costly. By waterproofing your balcony you minimise the risk of water damage to the structure.
What causes balconies to leak?
Most balconies are constructed from concrete. Having an uneven balcony can cause water puddle to concentrate in certain areas which increases the likelihood of water damage.
Water can easily seep into concrete and create cracks and weakness. Once the concrete is internally compromised, then continued leakage is sure to follow. If there are already cracks or damage to the surface or joints of your balcony, then it opens the path for water to become trapped and seep further into the foundation. Whatever material your balcony is made of, water seeping through is a real threat and once it starts it only gets worse.
What are the warning signs of leaking balconies?
Some early symptoms of water damage that you can find on your balcony are loose tiles or cracks forming in paint and plaster. If these smaller signs are left unattended, they can give way to more serious issues, such as missing tiles and rotting in the interior of the balcony. As soon as you start seeing those early warning signs, it’s time to consider waterproofing your balcony.
