A Comprehensive Approach Towards Balcony Restoration

When the owner of two five-storey rental buildings located at Crown Hill Place in Etobicoke contacted Tenera, he was concerned about potentially having to replace the 28 balconies which could lead to building closure – an impractical option due to tenant occupancy.

Recognising the urgency and complexity of the situation, our team of specialists conducted a thorough assessment to devise a comprehensive restoration plan that would ensure the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of the balconies while minimising disruption to tenants.

Balcony Repair Specification

The proposed restoration plan encompassed all 28 balcony slabs, addressing both ceiling and floor surfaces as well as perimeter edges. To begin, concrete balcony waterproofing was identified as a critical component, necessitating crack repair, patching, slope reversal, parging, and application of a finish layer. Each step of the process was outlined to ensure the contractors would follow all the specks, to meet industry standards and regulatory requirements.

The contractor was instructed on which specialised techniques and industrial-grade materials to use to be able to restore the geometry and load-bearing capacity of the balcony slabs without the need for complete recasting. This approach not only saved time and resources but also minimised disruption to tenants, allowing them to remain comfortably housed throughout the restoration process.

Extensive crack repair and patching were undertaken to address the existing structural vulnerabilities and prevent further deterioration. Once the repairs were completed, both floor and ceiling surfaces were parged over to create a smoother aesthetic look, enhancing the overall appearance of the balconies. To ensure long-lasting protection against environmental factors such as UV radiation and moisture, a UV-resistant, non-slip paint was applied as the final layer.

Upon completion of the repairs, balcony railings were replaced to achieve a fully renewed appearance, with precise measurements taken and design recommendations provided to ensure optimal suitability.

Balcony Restoration Benefits

The benefits of this comprehensive restoration application are manifold. Not only does it enhance the structural integrity and longevity of the balconies, but it also improves their visual appeal, contributing to the overall attractiveness of the buildings. Additionally, by utilising specialized methods and materials,  the contractor was able to achieve these results with minimal disruption to tenant occupancy, ensuring their safety, comfort, and satisfaction throughout the restoration process.
