Here at Belanger Engineering, we want to help you take the best possible care of your building, both inside and out. One way that we do this is by providing expert balcony restoration services. Clearly, you need to keep your balconies in good condition in order to ensure that they are safe to use, and our team has the right experience to do just that. In this article, we’ll go over some signs to look for in order to tell if you need balcony restoration. If you notice any of these things on your property, we encourage you to give us a call right away.
- Creaking- One clear sign that your balcony is deteriorating is creaking sounds. If you hear your balcony creak under your feet as you walk on it, then it’s highly likely that the structure is compromised. In this situation, we recommend closing off the area and calling our team for balcony restoration services as soon as possible. We’ll assess the structure, then make any necessary repairs to ensure that your balcony is safe to use once more.
- Visual Damage- In addition to audio cues, you should also pay attention to how your balcony looks. If you see any part of the structure beginning to show signs of wear or damage, such as cracks, splintering, loose nails or screws, displacement, or sagging, you need balcony restoration.
- Structural Decay- Lastly, it’s important to check the structure that holds the balcony up for signs of decay. In many cases, this structure is hidden from view, which makes it more likely for damage to progress until the structure is too far gone. Periodically inspect these supports to check their condition, and if you see any deterioration, call our team for balcony restoration services.
