Balcony and Outdoor Tiling works
Where a leak has caused too much damage to a balcony’s substrate (underlying layer), then the only option to repair the balcony may be to do a Full ReTile.
This is where SCR will remove all the existing tiles and damaged substrate and remove it all from site.
SCR will re-sheet with correct Industrial sheeting, and (if required) screed the balcony to correct the fall, to ensure water adequately runs off the balcony.
SCR then carries out it’s high quality waterproofing process to ensure your balcony is waterproofed to Australian Standards AS3740.
SCRs Tilers will then attend to lay your tiles using Industrial Tile Adhesives.
Once tiled, SCR Melbourne use a Flexible Epoxy Grout (at no additional cost) and apply final perimeter seals to you balcony – ensuring you now have a fully waterproofed Balcony!
This service normally takes between 5-7 working days for completion depending on the size and structure of the balcony.
Signs that your balcony may require a Full ReTile;
If you see multiple cracked and broken tiles across your balcony surface, then there is a good chance your substrate is damaged. If you feel the balcony sinking or it feels ‘spongey’ to walk on – this is another sign your substrate has sustained damage and will need to be repaired.
Tiles that are lifting or have come away from the substrate is another good indication that there is substrate damage.
