Leaking balcony? Is water coming inside your home from the balcony after rain or when watering plants? A leaking balcony can be representative of a more serious problem and may be causing considerable damage to your property that you can’t actually see.
We are frequently called to homes where the balcony has been leaking for a very long time but it is only when very obvious signs start presented themselves that the client realises there is an issue.
Signs your balcony is leaking:
Flooding or water not draining away.
Smell of mildew caused by dampness.
Warped walls due to water causing them to swell and contract.
Bubbling paint because water prevents paint from adhering to the wall.
Tile grout crumbling and disintegrating due to constant moisture.
Sticking doors caused by timber swelling and contracting.
