Most people enjoy spending at least some time outdoors, and that goes for those who live in high-rise apartments as much as those in single-family and condo dwellings, which is why so many dwellings are built with balconies. Multi-story hotels and other types of buildings also have balconies so the occupants can enjoy some fresh air and magnificent views. The thing to remember if you own such a building is that there will likely come a time when you need to be thinking about balcony restoration.
One reason to consider balcony restoration is to ensure safety. This is true for any age of building, but the older it is, the more critical it is to have the balconies inspected for any signs of structural weakness. It is also imperative to review the balconies if the use has changed in any way. If there would be more people on the balcony or the addition of more weight for any reason, a balcony restoration should be part of the renovation. Another reason to consider balcony restoration is to achieve a different aesthetic. It can do wonders for the attractiveness of an older building to modernize the balcony’s appearance.
