Ignoring The Need For Leaking Balcony Repairs Can Cause Damage to the Building And Your Health!

The 1st Choice For Leaking Balcony Repairs Sydney Wide!

SealRITE Solutions offers leaking balcony repairs Sydney wide. In addition to the obvious annoyance caused for yourself and those who share your building, the structural damage that can take place from a balcony leaking is significant. Not only can this damage be structurally profound, but if left unattended for long enough, risk to human life and extraordinary expense is possible.

So, Why Do You Need Leaking Balcony Repairs?

There’s no single answer to this question because the circumstances of every leaking balcony are unique.

Balconies face an extreme range of weather conditions, and the amount of building movement that occurs due to temperature shifts or building settlement can be significant. For this reason, assessing the situation is not always straightforward.

Some of the more common reasons for leakage include:

  • Porous and deteriorated grout.

  • Cracks in perimeter and skirting tile seals.

  • Waterproof membrane failure.

  • Tile breakage and movement.

  • Poor drainage and fall towards drainage.

  • Doorway and balustrading issues.

To correctly diagnose a leaking balcony issue takes experience and thorough knowledge of the construction process. It also takes time to properly assess the balcony and the surrounding areas to identify other potential issues.

Other issues surrounding the balcony (as it is not always the balcony which is the issue) include air-conditioning pipes/wiring penetrating into the walls which have not be sealed, doors (in particular sliding doors) which have been incorrectly installed, weep holes being blocked in the brick walls etc.

The ‘Critical’ First Assessment

As with leaking showers, the accuracy of the initial assessment on your leaking balcony repair is critical. Not only can the effectiveness of the solution be affected, but the integrity and cost-effectiveness of pricing may be as well.

The Assessment and Quote Should be by a Licenced Professional

Obviously, any serious assessment must be carried out by somebody who is qualified and experienced. For this reason, we suggest that you ask to see the licence certification of any person assessing this type of work. This is not an unreasonable request. If it is not a licensed and experienced tradesperson, then you should insist on somebody else doing the assessment. This is work you do not want to cut corners on!

Their waterproofing licence certification should also show their personal name on it. Businesses in our industry require a licence for the entity itself. This does not however ensure that the person assessing and quoting is licensed themselves. Look for their name on the licence and accept nothing less!

The Quote Should be Detailed and Precise For Your Leaking Balcony Repairs!

Beware of the tradesman who shows up, talks a good game and then gives you a rough estimate of the job price. The difference between a Quote and an Estimate is that a Quote is binding, an Estimate is not. As well as that be sure to check the credentials of the Work Health and Safety Documentation as well as their insurances and the terms and conditions either on their invoice or referred to on their invoice. Don’t fall prey to loopholes created in terms and conditions that may have been set up to avoid responsibility or liability. Ask our team about these things and receive instant answers on your first call!

The quoting team and Renee were great but a few small issues with the repairs. Had our shower waterproofed and re-tiled and walls re-grouted.Some bits of grout were missed or just cleaned, this became apparent after about 2 months when it discolored. Not too worried as i know its easy to miss bits when you're looking at a wall of white.One of the hob tiles had a very small chip which had been hidden with a blob of grout, again didn't find this until after a few cleans when it came off.The floor tiles weren't cut to line up with the wall tile grout lines, again not a major deal but it would have been nice as this is how it was originally and wouldn't have been hard.I had supplied 2 boxes of tiles which were torn open and then not used leaving me with 2 stacks of tiles and no box to store them in.Again office staff were great but tradesman could have paid a bit more attention to detail (yes i know i am picky but I'm also a tradie and expect others to work to my standard) and mainly wasn't impressed with the hidden chip.

We used SealRITE for two leaking shower repairs in southern Sydney. We had previously booked a cowboy who was completely useless to deal with and it was impossible to trust him because he wouldn't communicate on even the most minor of issues. We were landlords and did not have access to the property to monitor what was happening which was very disconcerting. We switched to SealRITE as soon as we could and they were so professional from the first moment until the job was done. It was just wonderful. If you are a landlord and need some waterproofing and shower fix done i would recommend SealRITE for piece of mind and a smooth job.

We live by the Cronulla oceanfront where salt ans winds and sun cause major deterioration to our balconies. Sealrite were so professional and thorough! All of the workmen involved were courteous, efficient and communicated each step of the way. Renae coordinated all the works with myself and my neighbours and kept us informed allthe way. Highly recommended!

SealRite repaired our shower after the waterproofing had failed. The tradesman was fantastic. On time, professional, courtesy of us and making sure we were happy, barely took a break all day for 3 days. We were so impressed. Our experience was great and we would highly recommend.

They recently repaired my shower. They were really lovely on to deal with. Explained everything that was going to happen and kept me informed every step. The guy that came to my house was on time and left everything very clean and tidy. The shower look fantastic and is no longer leaking into my kitchen below. Highly recommend. Always happy to refer good local companies.

Our shower looks brand new and I am very happy with the job. It was a pleasure to deal with this company. From the very pleasant and helpful Lesley and Amanda who I spoke to on the phone, to Ryan who quoted the job and Dominic who carried out the work, explaining what he was doing at each stage of the job. He even wiped his shoes with a chux each time he had to step outside the bathroom so he didn't walk any dust or debri through the home. I highly recommend this company.
