Facing unique challenges when it comes to balcony waterproofing is common in strata properties. Specialised solutions are often necessary to safeguard both individual units and the overall building structure from potential water damage. 

As a property owner or strata manager, you’re likely familiar with the harm water infiltration can do. It can affect not only the appearance of a property but its structural stability as well. This is where our expert waterproofing services can make a difference, specifically designed for strata properties.

Choosing our professional strata balcony waterproofing services not only protects your property from water damage but also maintains its value over the years. Don’t wait until you see the first signs of leaks; taking a proactive approach to waterproofing is the best way to defend your property.

Types Of Balcony Waterproofing

Liquid Waterproofing Membrane

One technique for waterproofing is called liquid waterproofing membrane application. This process involves applying a special liquid solution to your balcony’s surface. As it dries, it turns into a durable, rubbery layer that completely seals your balcony from water.

This liquid waterproofing method is flexible, letting us easily cover even the most intricate shapes and corners. The result is a superior protection against water seeping into your balcony. But it doesn’t stop at just protection. This method also extends the life of your balcony by preventing cracks and other water-related damages.

Sheet Membranes

In addition to our liquid waterproofing services, we provide sheet membrane solutions as well. This adds another strong layer of protection to your balcony. These membranes are pre-fabricated layers that we apply to the surface of your balcony. They ensure a secure seal against any water leakage.

Unlike the liquid alternatives, sheet membranes are large, sturdy sheets that we carefully install, with overlaps at the edges to avoid any leaks. They’re perfect for areas that are regularly exposed to high amounts of moisture and can resist even the most severe weather. This option not only improves the waterproofing of your balcony but also adds to its longevity.

Cementitious Coating

This process uses a mix of cement-based materials that solidify to create a strong, waterproof layer over surfaces. It’s an excellent option for areas exposed to weather, delivering enduring defense against water penetration.

Bituminous Membrane

Bituminous membrane is a sticky, thick substance, which comes from processing petroleum. It’s perfect for places that often get wet or damp.

This substance is applied while hot, allowing it to fill in tiny gaps and form a waterproof barrier. This barrier is tough and can stand up to all kinds of weather. Plus, it’s flexible, so it can move with your building and help prevent cracks from forming.

Polyurethane Liquid Membrane

Polyurethane liquid membrane is both durable and adaptable, fitting perfectly to the unique shape of your balcony. It’s a reliable, long-lasting option to keep your outdoor space dry and safe from weather damage. It also has a sleek, shiny finish.

Polyurethane Liquid Membrane is a long-lasting, dependable solution for your balcony’s waterproofing needs.

Epoxy Coating Systems

Epoxy coatings are known for their toughness and excellent resistance to water, chemicals, and UV light. This makes them a perfect choice for all kinds of weather conditions.

When you pick epoxy, you’re choosing a sleek, high-gloss finish that not only waterproofs but also boosts the look of your outdoor space. This method greatly lowers the chance of leaks and extends your balcony’s lifespan, saving you from future repair expenses. Thanks to our know-how, your balcony will stay shielded and look fantastic all year round.

Crystallization Products

These aren’t your typical surface coatings – they create a waterproof barrier within the concrete itself for lasting protection. 

These products soak deep into the concrete, filling cracks and tiny gaps. This process makes the surface resistant to water. As time passes, these products continue to react with any new moisture, sealing any new cracks that might develop.

Crystallization products offer a solid shield against water damage, dramatically increasing the lifespan of your balcony.

Acrylic Coatings

Acrylic coatings provide an unbroken barrier against water, keeping your balcony dry and safe from damage. Compared to other waterproofing solutions, our acrylic coatings are simple to apply and quick to dry. This means you can start enjoying your balcony sooner. They’re also remarkably durable, withstanding the harsh sun and tough weather conditions seamlessly.

Our acrylic coatings aren’t just functional, they’re aesthetically pleasing too. With a variety of colors to pick from, our coatings can enhance the visual appeal of your balcony while offering protection.

FAQ About Balcony Waterproofing

Yes, balconies need to be waterproofed. This is important to prevent water damage, which can lead to structural issues, mould growth, and deterioration of the balcony surface and railings. Waterproofing is essential to maintain the integrity and safety of the balcony, especially in areas exposed to rain and moisture.

The cost of waterproofing a balcony can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size of the balcony, the materials used, the complexity of the job, and the geographical location. Generally, prices can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.

In Australia, the standards for waterproofing balconies are outlined in the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) National Construction Code (NCC) and AS 4654.1-2012 (Waterproofing membranes for external above-ground use – Materials) and AS 4654.2-2012 (Waterproofing membranes for external above-ground use – Design and installation). These standards provide guidelines on materials, design, and installation methods to ensure effective waterproofing. They are designed to ensure that the waterproofing is durable, resistant to weather and UV radiation, and provides adequate protection against water ingress.

What Our Clients Say About Us

“I’ve had Predrag manage four projects for me for over four years, and I’ve been completely satisfied. Predrag was completely professional, starting with the quotes for the jobs he undertook, breaking them down into sections. He also has an eye for detail and makes suggestions for anything he feels needs attention. He’s punctual and reliable, and so I couldn’t recommend Predrag highly enough.”

Helen Muir

“Predrag Loncar of SMR Builders was hired in March 2020 to carry out remedial repairs to our property, to reverse bad building practices during the original build 20 years ago, which had led to extensive damp problems in the walls. His initial inspection was detailed, wide-ranging and thorough. After we had accepted his quote, he made sure that he consulted and liaised with us at every stage of the work. When he opened the walls for repair, in several places, he discovered further problems which he carefully explained to us and then offered suggestions for repair. With Predrag and SMR Builders, you will get someone passionate about his work, who has a detectives’ nose for seeking out the best possible solution and who wants to achieve the best possible result. He is very aware that his work is in someone’s home, and he constantly stresses to his men to be respectful of their surroundings. We are very happy to say that the team of Christian the foreman, with Ivan and Caramba, were very pleasant to have around, and did not cause us any problems at all. We have no hesitation in recommending Predrag and SMR Builders; it would be very difficult to find a better builder for your remedial work.”
