What is concrete Balcony repair?

Concrete Balcony Repair is the process of repairing broken or deteriorating concrete balcony’s which are found on many residential and commercial buildings. These balcony’s can become damages due to wear and tear or exposure to South Florida’s harsh elements. 


Why is concrete Balcony repair important?

Concrete balconies are found in many residential buildings across South Florida. They provide a great place to hang out with friends and enjoy the South Florida weather. However, when these concrete balconies fail they can become a safety hazard for residents and the surrounding neighborhood. Repairing a concrete balcony will make sure the residents of your building are safe and not exposed to the risk of a failing balcony. 

When concrete balconies have cracks or spalling it can cause pieces of concrete to fall on the surrounding areas. Since many buildings with concrete balconies have multiple stories a small piece of concrete falling can injure anyone below or can pollute the surrounding area. That is why it is imperative to get your balcony repaired at the first sign of damage. 

How do Concrete Balcony's fail?

Concrete balconies are exposed to South Florida’s harsh weather.  As an exterior element, concrete balconies are constantly being exposed to the elements including rain and salt that is suspended in the air. This especially applies to buildings that are closer to the coast. The closer you are to the ocean the more exposed your building will be to salt ions that are evaporated from the ocean and suspended in the air. 

Concrete balconies can also become damaged or fail due to improper construction techniques. If the balcony is not constructed properly it can fail prematurely and start to rapidly deteriorate. If you see cracks in your concrete balcony or even worse spalling then you must have a structural engineer look at it and give you an assessment of the damages. 

Do i need engineering plans to repair a concrete Balcony

Yes, if your concrete balcony is damaged you will need signed and sealed plans in order to get a permit and carry out the repairs. These engineering plans provide an instruction manual for repairing your concrete balcony and outline the dimensions and materials needed to properly repair your concrete balcony.

Concrete repair plans are also the first step in the repair process. Once you have signed and sealed plans from a structural engineer you can submit them to the city to get a permit and start the repairs.
