When a balcony needs to be repaired, it can be stressful, especially if you are doing it yourself. It could be that a defective balcony is the result of structural deficiencies, or it could be that there is another issue at play. It is important to make balcony repairs a high priority in order to prevent any safety implications.

It is crucial to first determine the underlying issue of the balcony whether it be non-compliant balustrades, waterproofing issues, tile delamination or structural concern.

Balcony Repair Cost

Upkeep of balconies varies from simple projects such as joint sealing and retiling to more complex ones such as waterproofing to fix leaky balconies. Water entering the interior of a property can be caused by leaking balconies, this can result in serious damage and result in severe water damage. Leaking balconies can be solved with our membrane repair and concrete balcony crack repair services. As soon as you notice there is a leak or another issue, you should contact us for expert assistance.

As a result of ineffective subheads and sills, sliding doors are also a common entry point for water. In order to ensure waterproofing and ease of operation, these issues would need to be addressed.

Balcony repair costs depend on the type of work required. Waterproofing, re-tiling, and balustrade replacement all have varying costs. Before you start with your balcony repairs, it is important to engage a remedial engineer to determine what kind of damage your balcony has and how much it can cost to fix it, also to provide a technical specification for materials and methodology required for repair.  For example, someone may require joint sealing to ensure water tightness and stop water leaks, this price will be relatively low compared to someone who needs to rectify their balustrade, water-proofing and tiles. MJ Engineering Projects can assist you in all aspects of balcony rectification from scope to practical completion.
