If you don’t have balcony waterproofing the water that seeps into your balcony can cause extreme amounts of damage. Especially if it gets into places that it shouldn’t, so it is important that your balcony is appropriately waterproofed.
Finding the right balcony waterproofing company is essential to your home’s value and your safety, but how do you know which one to pick? Listed below are a few tips to help you make the right decision.
Why is Waterproofing a balcony so important?
Waterproofing is extremely necessary for any area of your home that attracts water such as:
Waterproofing stops water and moisture from seeping into the timber of your balcony which can cause the wood to rot and swell as well as create mold and mildew issues and other unhealthy and unsafe conditions.
If these problems occur you can be faced with a very larger repair bill and an unhealthy environment in which to live. So it’s a good idea to take preventative action and employ a professional balcony waterproofing company to help you protect your investment.
What to look for when choosing a balcony waterproofing company
In order to ensure that you’re choosing the right company there are certain things that you can look for that will help you identify a good balcony waterproofing company.
The first thing you should do is make sure that the company employs only fully trained and licensed balcony waterproofing technicians. Also make sure that the company is insured since you’re going to have a lot of people on your property performing heavy industrial labor.
Hiring only a licensed and insured company can give you peace of mind in the event that something goes wrong.
Licensing is also a good indication that the company is established and has invested money in training its employees and customers.
The balcony waterproofing company should also provide you with references of past customers when you ask. If they are reluctant to give you references do not use the company since having no references can mean that the company is new or doesn’t do a good job.
A reputable waterproofing company will request to come out to your home and inspect the balcony before giving an estimate of the repair costs. Coming out to your home will help them determine what products should be used, the length and width of your balcony and how complicated the job will turn out to be.
Ask several balcony waterproofing companies for estimates
Ideally, you should have at least three to five estimates so that you can see if the prices you are being quoted are reasonable.
In order for you to accurately compare pricing make sure that each balcony waterproofing company gives you an estimate for the same job and materials.
Also make sure that the company provides a 10 year guarantee on the waterproofing done to your home.
A good waterproofing job will last more than 10 years but it is good to know that the company stand behind it work.
