A balcony can be an awesome feature to have in your apartment or house. A spot to enjoy gorgeous views, people watching, warm breezes and much-needed fresh air? What’s not to love. Unfortunately, if a balcony isn’t waterproofed correctly when installed, it can quickly turn into the source of frustration and expense. Fortunately, if you are dealing with a leaky balcony in Canberra, you can always call Megasealed for help.
Not only can balcony leaks damage the balcony itself—resulting in loose tiles, cracked grout and other noticeable signs of wear and tear—but it can also start a chain reaction of problems for the rest of your home. Indeed, if your balcony has been compromised and is showing signs of water damage, you should think of balcony waterproofing in Canberra as a means of protecting the rest of your home from damage. Put simply, the balcony does not exist on its own but is a part of your house. Balcony leaks can easily lead to water damage and related structural problems elsewhere.
The good news is that most of the signs that indicate balcony leaks are hard to miss. If your balcony has loose tiles or surfaces, you will probably notice. The same goes for other tell-tale signs, such as cracking grout lines, calcification in tile grout, tiles that are changing colour or damage to paint or plaster. If you are using your balcony, you will likely spot these signs before your leaky balcony turns into a liability for the rest of the house.
If you suspect that you have a leaky balcony in Canberra, give Megasealed a call right away. Even if you have noticed just one or two of the symptoms above and aren’t sure you have a big problem, we can still help. Part of our balcony leak repair service is leak detection.
