Posted on 2020-07-16

Balconies are prone to leaks as they are exposed to the harsh Aussie elements all year round. If you suspect you are in need of leaking balcony repairs, it is important to act fast. Call a Megasealed specialist to confirm you suspicions, because if you don’t it could end up costing you thousands down the track.

Balcony leaks are especially sinister as they often lead to ceiling leaks. Ultimately compromising the structural integrity of your home or apartment.

A rule of thumb for ceiling leaks is to get them repaired ASAP, in order to avoid unnecessary costs and safety hazards. Here are some tips from the pros to help you fix your leaking ceiling once and for all.

Step one, understand that a ceiling leak is often a symptom of a need for leaking balcony repairs. A discoloured, damp, mouldy or musty smelling ceiling are all telltale signs of a leaking balcony.
