New Aluminium French Doors and Balcony Remediation to Repair Waterproofing problems to this Allambie Heights home on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Leaking balcony repair.

Our client was experiencing several leaks for a number of years from their first floor balcony into their living area, particularly when there was a combination of heavy rain and strong winds. They requested for a full balcony remediation including waterproofing, new tiling and new balcony doors to eliminate any further leaks.

Our team of experienced tradesmen were engaged to remediate these issues that had arisen over time with efficiency and high quality workmanship.

Balcony waterproofing and retiling. 

Our first point of call was to remove the existing balcony structure ready for the area to be re-waterproofed and tiled.  Upon exposing the flooring of the balcony, we discovered the entire flooring and several joists needed to be replaced as moisture had deteriorated them over time. We installed several new joists and new compressed flooring to the floor structure before we could install a new waterproofing sheet membrane to protect and secure this area from any further water penetration.

Once the PVC waterproofing sheet membrane was applied to the area, our next step was to tile screed and lay new tiles with a textured outdoor tile for a seamless new look.

The adjacent roof to the balcony was also investigated to rule out any water entering the area from this section of the roof.

Balcony door replacement. 

Two new Aluminium powder coated French doors were installed to replace the old outdated timber doors. These doors were a perfect solution to complete the new modern look of the balcony.

To finish we applied an acrylic render and a fresh coat of paint to the surrounding walls to transform and refresh this amazing outdoor space.
