Unfortunately, decks and balconies break over time and become increasingly unsafe for a number of reasons, including:
- Wood rot
- Age or
- Bad construction
Types of balconies
Whatever the problem, structural repairs – especially those that are hung and bear weight (often the case with balconies) never be put on the back burner. We repair a wide variety of balcony types, including:
- Suspended balconies. Typically, this type of balcony construction is hung 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 with a higher density.
- Stacked balconies. Stacked balconies are among the most common balcony constructions and are not connected to the building itself. For this reason, they have a minimal load on the building or structure.
- Cantilevered or protruding balconies. Cantilevered balconies support the weight of cantilevers, which are defined as a rigid structural element that extends horizontally and is supported at one end only. Protruding balconies extend from the front of the building with no apparent support system.
- Balcony decking. Balcony planks refers to the materials that make up the floor of the balcony itself. This can be wood, laminate, metal or other types of materials; each of which has its own preventive maintenance requirements.
