Balcony Waterproofing

The balcony is a highly valued outdoor space for apartment living. Unfortunately, leaking balconies are now one of the most common defects in apartment buildings.

Balconies are exposed to all types of weather and need a quality membrane to protect them. The membrane usually applied under the balcony tiles is sometimes low quality or damaged, eventually leading to balcony leaks and building damage.

Balconies that continue to leak risk water flowing into interior spaces via doors and window frames and below neighbouring properties. The smallest leak can cause significant damage and health issues associated with mould.

Long term leaks on balconies can result in an accumulation of calcium crystals and salts, known as ‘leaching or efflorescence’ that eventually appear on white patches on the balcony or the outside of the building.

For smaller and simple leaks, caulking with specialised sealants is all that the balcony may need. For severe or long term leaks, applying a new membrane is the best solution.

With expertise in leak detection and certified Waterproofing, the Webb Waterproofing Services team can inspect and provide the most cost-effective remedial waterproofing solution.

The liquid membranes selected by the Webb Waterproofing Services team are highly adaptable. They can be directly applied to the substrate (balcony) over the tiles, thus avoiding the costly removal and replacement of tiles.

The membranes are available in various colours to match existing tiles and come in a range of finishes.

The methodology used by Webb Waterproofing Services complies with Australian Standards and comes with a ten-year guarantee.

Key Points:

  • Long-life membranes suitable for balcony design and conditions
  • The membrane is flexible and capable of sealing all cracks and joints
  • The membrane moves with normal contraction & expansion of the balcony envelope¬†
  • Correct methodology use to make it watertight
  • Minimal disruption to building occupants
  • 10 Year Warranty for absolute peace of mind
