Balcony leak repairs

A leaking balcony may not pose immediate problems, but if left uncorrected long enough, the resulting damage will be devastating and expensive. Missing grout or cracks in your tiles indicates water may be leaking through to cause membrane damage. It is important to detect any potential leaking balcony repairs as early as possible before serious problems develop.

Balcony leaking repairs

Balconies and rooftop terraces are often created above living areas such as apartments, offices, retail & general living areas. Water ingress into occupied spaces can lead to not only interior damage but also structural damage to the building envelope.

CAUSES OF LEAKING BALCONIES

You can never take a Leaking Balcony lightly. Many times, the leak has been taking place slowly for some time before it is noticed. The most common reason behind these leaks is membrane failure. Wrong product or improper application of the membrane are often the underlying causes. Over the years, we have come across countless instances of membrane failure. Most of the time, it is due to an incorrect application that doesn’t make the most of the product. A thin application and not providing enough time to cure are among the most common causes of this problem.
