Balcony leaks

Balcony leaks are a big issue in apartments and townhouses

A significant number of modern multi-story buildings, such as apartments and multi-level townhouses, are constructed with tiled balconies as a key feature. With the increase of housing density, and the trend towards smaller and more centrally located residences, tiled balconies are popular as they provide additional amenity such as extra living space, enjoyment of the weather and sunlight, ability to have a small garden and balcony views.


In many instances, tiled balconies are built directly above living areas such as bedrooms and lounge rooms. Without the correct waterproofing and construction, this can lead to frequent problems with leaks. The rooms or neighbors below are usually the first to be affected, and can experience a range of leak related issues including water leaks after heavy rain, collapsing ceilings, damp and mold. The costs and effects of this can be significant for all parties including residents, property managers, property owners and builders.


Without specialized skills and experience, it can be incredibly difficult to prevent and stop balcony leaks, despite the best efforts of general construction workers using methods such as silicone sealants and testing equipment.
