Balconies - How to Fix Leaking Balconies

"Water penetration is one of most common cause of building defects, and a repeat offender in  builder-client disputes." MBAV  Vol 73 - Issue 03

  • Residential multi-story, multi-dwelling, apartment buildings are experiencing an alarming frequency of building defects, most commonly caused through waterproofing failure.
  • Waterproofing and sealing balconies, especially if over habitable spaces, should be a well thought out process and done correctly from the outset.
  • The consequences of balcony water leaks can be costly and difficult to repair.

  • Sprayable liquid waterproofing system, which is installed by our certified & fully trained employees - there are no subcontract waterproofers on our sites!
  • Liquid Membranes can be used on the most complex of balcony details eg: penetrations, drainage outlets, balustrades, door thresholds and upturns on vertical walls.

Seamless liquid applied elastomeric polymer, water based membranes have become the ultimate solution for balcony waterproofing.

  • If balconies are not waterproofed correctly the first time, you may be faced with repairing your balcony surface over and over again if the CORRECT repair system is not used. 
  • Accumulation of calcium crystals and salts that disfigures the top edges or underside of balconies are known as Efflorescence.
  • Efflorescence cannot form in the absence of water.
  • The waterproofing product chosen for balcony restoration  should have the correct amount of expansion capabilities as the surrounding structure.
  • Must be able to adhere to them and create a bond and seal.

Tips to Waterproofing & Seal Balconies

The following tactics will help to ensure good balcony sealing and avoid water ingression.

  • Complete all penetrating works PRIOR to applying the waterproofing.
  • Choose a sealant or membrane material that suits your balcony structure, balustrade materials and roof materials.
  • Ensure any penetrating material are applied with an additional sealant that will create an additional seal on these.
  • Make sure you have a good drainage plan worked out with the balcony levels so not water pools are created.

Repairing Roofs

  • Remedial waterproofing services repair existing & leaking membranes by over coating with a Liquid Applied Waterproofing system. 
  • This can save a roof project thousands of dollars without the need to replace the roof or membrane.
  • Roof leaks often occur at points of weakness like roof penetrations, around roof mounted air-conditioning units, HVAC ducts or at skylights, joins/seams in sheet membranes.
  • Flat roofs and low slope roofs also have their own inherent problems typically caused by splits, cracks and tears at the waterproofing membrane seams.
  • Existing roofs may have low grade roof coatings such as mastic, tar or acrylic reflective roof coatings.

  • Using our Liquid Applied waterproofing system we can seal around penetrations, repair drains and gutters, recondition waterways and ponding areas, even seal around skylights and HVAC ducts.
  • Liquid applied roofing membranes can be installed without affecting or disrupting the workplace beneath.
  • Suited to almost all common types of industrial roofing; including corrugated fibro, aluminum, steel, concrete, timber, bitumen and can also be applied over failed sheet membrane systems.
Findlay-Evans Waterproofing install solar reflective roofing membranes - save on energy costs.
  • Liquid Applied waterproofing systems increased insulation while at the same time reducing the need for complete replacement of existing roofs.
  • Our elastomeric roof waterproofing coatings are engineered to move with roof thermal cycles without cracking, flaking or peeling.
  • These roof membranes exhibit extreme flexibility with advanced elongation – up to three times greater than many other membrane systems.
  • This enhanced flexibility allows the waterproofing membrane to move with the roof substrate normal climatic expansion and contraction.
  • Liquid applied waterproofing membranes have numerous properties crucial for roof projects: UV stable, with stand “ponding” water and molds to the shape of the roof and adheres to just about all roof substrates.

  • Coverage of up to 800-1000 sq/m per day can be obtained on some projects – offering exceptional value for money.
  • Instant set – enables shorter windows of opportunity to carry out application.
  • Can be applied on slightly damp surfaces – sometimes a necessary requirement for winter projects.
  • Requires no primers, mixers, flames or heat – contributing to safer and faster applications.
