As an exposed, external structure, the balcony area is one of the most vulnerable and the most prone to several water leakages.
- Danger could be in the making if continuous water leakage is allowed
- Ruins some areas of the ceiling and other parts of the house resulting in spalling concrete
- Temperature and weather changes from time to time
You should inspect any brick for mortar integrity, grout condition and misalignment, worn edges, cracks, holes and splintering.
Most importantly for the purposes of waterproofing, you will want to inspect the decking waterproofing system for deficiencies such as cuts, tears, blisters as well as ensuing that any and all water flow is away from the building.
