Melbourne's Guide to Waterproofing Leaking Commercial Balconies

In Melbourne, commercial balconies are an important part of many buildings, providing outdoor spaces for offices, cafes, and more. However, balcony leaks can pose a significant challenge.

What Causes Balcony Leaks?

Identifying why balconies leak is the first step in effective waterproofing:

  • Design Flaws: Inadequate drainage, insufficient expansion joints, and improper slopes can lead to water accumulation.

  • Aging Waterproofing Systems: Over time, waterproofing membranes can deteriorate, leading to leaks.

  • Improper Installation: Faulty installation of the initial waterproofing system is a common cause of leaks in balconies.
