Unfortunately, decks and balconies break down over time and become increasingly unsafe for a number of reasons, including:

  • Termites
  • Wood rot
  • Age or
  • Bad construction

Types of balconies

Whatever the problem, structural repairs – especially those that are hanging and load bearing (often the case with balconies) should be never be put on the back burner. We repair a wide variety of balcony types, including:

  1. Hanging balconies. Typically, this type of balcony structure is suspended from stainless steel cables attached to the edges of the balcony, and a large slab is connected to the building at an angle of 45 degrees. These are often seen in cities or areas of higher density.
  2. Stacked balconies. Stacked balconies are among the most common balcony structures and are not connected to the building itself. As a result, they have a minimum load on the building or structure.
  3. Cantilevered or cantilevered balconies. The weight of cantilevered balconies is supported by cantilever, which is defined as a rigid structural element that extends horizontally and is supported at only one end. Projecting balconies extend from the front of the building without any apparent support system.
  4. Balcony decking. Balcony terrace refers to the materials that make up the floor of the balcony itself. This can be wood, laminate, metal or other types of materials; all of which have their own preventive maintenance requirements.

Considerations for repair and design of balconies

It is crucial to have an assessment carried out on your patio or balcony at least once a year. This not only saves you a lot of money, but also prevents safety risks and accidents.

Of course, every balcony construction project is different, which is why our talented construction and design teams work closely with you to ensure repairs or redesigns fit your vision and work within your budget and time frame. Whether you are looking for a standard wooden balcony, a screened-in veranda, or a low-maintenance Alumawood terrace covering or want to add a slatted terrace covering that allows you to open and close the roof of the terrace or balcony, Best Rate offers a wide range of materials, design options and expertise to bring your vision to life.
