Does my Balcony Need Waterproofing?

Balcony leaks are common, particularly in older homes, and if left unchecked can lead to extensive damage. It’s worth remembering too that termites are attracted to damp areas and fungal growth around a home and a termite infestation is one headache you don’t need. If your balcony is leaking it is important to take steps to rectify the problem before it causes wider issues. Balcony waterproofing doesn’t have to involve major renovations; with a balcony sealant you can have a water tight balcony within a day and at a much lower cost than taking up the tiles, replacing the waterproof membrane…or paying thousands to rectify termite damage in the future.

Will the tiles have to be removed?

Balcony sealing doesn’t involve removing tiles. Instead, sealant is applied over the tiles to prevent water seeping through. This also prevents dirt getting into grouting and causing damage.

What does the balcony sealing service include?

Our balcony sealing service includes the application of sealant on tiles and grout joints as well as a perimeter seal and a chemical tile. A technician will come to your home and assess the balcony beforehand and give you instructions as to how to prepare the surface.

How long will it take?

Generally the job can be done in quickly with the minimum of disruption and provides an effective, less expensive solution to leaky balcony problems.

If you suspect you have a balcony leak make sure you take waterproofing measures to prevent further damage. Balcony sealing can help keep your balcony looking its best and protect it far into the future.
