Balconies and guardrails present unique challenges as their vitality is often intertwined with the performance of the building envelope and yet commonly defined as limited common area elements. Consequently, the maintenance of these systems or lack thereof is often deferred to the unit owner. Paradoxically the incentive to report damages or overall deterioration of balcony systems are often postponed until observable and systemic deterioration has already occurred.
Failure to adequately maintain and perform critical restoration of Balcony Systems is not only hazardous but also generally effect the capacity and resilience of the exterior façade and building envelope waterproofing. It is for these reasons and many more that when analyzing a property, structure or complex Structural Technologies dedicates a significant amount of time to inspection, testing and production of budgetary estimates detailing recommended maintenance and restoration alternatives. Balcony restoration projects which include wood, metal, cast concrete and pre-cast concrete require different initial evaluation procedures to be performed and post diagnostic analytics to be run accordingly.
