Remedial Waterproofing Project – a leaking balcony

Leaking balconies are the most common building defect in newer property builds.

Our remedial waterproofing project addressed a leaking balcony which was causing water ingress into the apartment and common areas. The property owner needed to find a cost-effective and long term solution to this problem.

The client engaged Webb Waterproofing to apply a membrane over the top of the existing tiles.  Remedial Waterproofing was cost-effective and less disruptive compared to the alternative of removing and replacing all tiles and membrane.

The Building

The Balcony

Preparation Stage

The Webb Plumbing Services team use wire brushes and cleaning products to remove dirt and to ensure adequate coating adhesion.

Application Stage 1

A Primer by Microl is applied as the foundation coat so the membrane can adhere.

Application Stage 2

A base coat of membrane from Microl is applied

Application Stage 3

The final coat of Microl membrane is applied.

Project Completion

The Webb Waterproofing team can tint the membrane to any colour in the Dulux range.

The colour selected for this membrane was a mid-tone grey.

The result is a quality finish and no further leaks.

The keys to a successful waterproofing project are:

  • Experience in leak detection
  • Technical expertise in membranes and application
  • A meticulous approach to the project

The Webb Waterproofing team are certified and have proven experience in remedial Waterproofing.
