Untreated balcony leaks can cause costly and unsightly damage to balcony substrates, as well as surfaces and areas underneath the balcony area. This can also cause unsightly damage to the balcony surfaces, causing cracks in tiles, efflorescence or calcium build up, and lifting or disbanding the tiles or over coatings. Leaks or ingress of moisture within a building or structure are the number one defect among buildings or structures in NSW.
Causes of leaking balconies
- Building movement
- Incorrect application or failure of the waterproofing membrane
- Poor substrate or structure construction
- Inadequate drainage or poor substrate gradient fall
- Inadequate adjacent flashings, including window or door sub-seal flashings
