Balconies are a key feature in many high-rise buildings, especially residential buildings. They provide a way for the people living and working in these buildings to get fresh air and sunshine. Unfortunately, because balconies are more exposed to the elements, they tend to wear out faster than the main structure of the building and require more maintenance and repairs. If any of the balconies on your building are in bad shape, you can turn to our team at Belanger Engineering to get the expert balcony restoration services you need. In this article, we’ll go over some key information you should know about the balcony restoration process.

What You Need to Know About Balcony Restoration

  • Cleaning – Balcony restoration often starts with cleaning the balcony floor. This not only makes the balcony look better, but it also helps our technicians identify damaged areas.
  • Crack Repair – When damage to a balcony affects its structure, the balcony restoration process may include crack repair. Our engineers will find all the cracks in the balcony floor and rails, then seal them with caulk. This will prevent the cracks from getting worse over time, and it will protect the balcony itself from water damage.
  • Concrete Dressing – In some cases, balcony restoration may require our team to apply a new layer of concrete over the floor or walls to even out the surface. We have extensive experience in concrete application, and you can count on us to make your balconies completely smooth—by the time we are finished, your balconies will look like new.
