Common Causes and Signs of a Leaking Balcony

  • Cracked tiles and missing tiles on a balcony indicate movement and damage to the substrate.
  • The presence of loose or hollow 'drummy' sounding tiles is also a serious sign of a leaking balcony, as this means your tiles are not adhering to the adhesives below, and allowing space for water to pool.
  • Faulty tiling on a balcony can leave your perimeter joints exposed and allow water access to your surrounding walls.
  • Cracked grout, and missing grout of any kind is a sure sign of a leaking balcony and will allow water direct access to your membrane and can cause major and costly damage.
  • Split membrane or damaged membrane can cause your leaking balcony to allow water to penetrate through to the support beams resulting in major damage.
  • Split Seals will also allow water access to perimeter walls.

The SCR Process

Want to Avoid a Complete Retile of the Balcony

The SCR Flexi Epoxy Grout sealant is a two part epoxy resin that can be tinted to a selection of colours and shades, and can used in many different applications. It is the perfect remedy for those on a lower budget and as an alternative of a completely new retile of the balcony. This falls in line with a smaller type repair, where the pulling up of tiles is not in the budget.

Using our very own specialised method, SCR has built a reputation in successfully using an epoxy sealing resin to repair leaking balconies without the removal of tiles. This includes de-grouting the balcony floor and all the surrounding perimeter joints. We then clean and dry out any damp with heat guns including the grout joints in preparation for our SCR Flexi epoxy treatment. Once that process is complete its a matter of applying the epoxy treatment and you will be left with a fully functional balcony without the previous leakage.
