A building’s balcony is an asset, but unfortunately, it is an asset that is sometimes ignored when it comes to regular upgrades and maintenance. As a business owner, be careful not to minimize the importance of balcony waterproofing and concrete maintenance. Focusing on damage prevention makes you less likely to see severe damage in the future.
The Dangers of Minimal or No Balcony Waterproofing
Without a high-quality waterproofing system, water can seep into the concrete. During colder temperatures, the water freezes, expands and damages the concrete structure. New Jersey is known for its cold, snowy winters so if you have minimal or faulty concrete waterproofing, the consequences may include:
- Weakened joints
- Blistering paint
Damage to your concrete balcony can result in compromised structural integrity.
The Solution to Prevent Concrete Damage
Focus on waterproofing before the weather turns cold. After an assessment of your balcony, we can determine the ideal waterproofing system, including:
- Waterproof fluid-applied and sheet membranes
- Urethane and elastomeric waterproof coatings
- Concrete restoration
- Above-grade and below-grade urethane and epoxy injections
- Waterproof sealant
We will work with you to find the appropriate solution.
