Signs Your Balcony Needs Repair
Balcony construction includes windows and doors, walls, flooring, a waterproof covering (if above living spaces), structural members, posts and railings, lighting fixtures, and water-resistant flashings. Most of these penetrate the exterior of the structure. If any of the components are not properly installed, water intrusion is unavoidable.
You may notice balcony water damage in any of the following ways:
- Visible efflorescence coming from the outside edge of deck system (This is a sign that water is pooling or not draining properly.)
- Water staining from leaks or pooling water
- Leaking at windows, doors, door thresholds or from underneath the deck
- Difficulty opening and closing windows or doors due to swelling of wood
- Deteriorating wood or dry rot
- Cracked or missing tiles
- Cracked or missing grout
- Peeling or blistering paint
- Weakened joints at balcony railings and structural posts
Commercial Balcony Inspections
As provided in Florida Statute 509.2112, “every public lodging establishment (including hotels, apartments, and condos) which is three or more stories in height must submit to the division a certificate stating that any and all balconies, platforms, stairways, and railways have been inspected by a person who, through education and experience, is competent to inspect multi-story buildings and found by such person to be safe, secure, and free of defects.”
Innovative Construction Solutions can help you comply with this requirement. Our inspectors will inspect the balconies, including decking, wall attachments, ledger boards, railings, and fasteners, noting and describing any deficiencies. If you take advantage of our balcony repair services, the inspector can reevaluate the property.
