“I recently had a failed waterproofing membrane under a tiled balcony. This resulted in substantial leakage and major damage to my ceiling…A clear waterproofing membrane from Remedial membranes was applied over the existing tiles. I found them professional, on time, and did an excellent job. Our balcony has not leaked despite substantial rain since the repair.”
“Great Business to deal with. Keep you updated and in the picture. Had no issues at all. Great product – does the job and finish is good. We had our steps and front Patio done. Impressive ! Would recommend product & Supplier with no hesitation..”
“My shower was leaking and I wanted to repair it myself. So I purchased the kit and watched the video and installed the membrane. I had a few questions through the process so I took a picture and text them through to the helpdesk and received an immediate call back.”
“I contacted Remedial Membranes after we sold our house but one of the conditions of the sale was the showers to be repaired. We didn’t have any spare tiles and the new owners did not want the look to change so the idea of putting a clear membrane over the surface was a perfect solution to everyone involved. The job was done in 1 morning and the sale went through. Highly recommend Remedial Membranes. Their ability to work to a deadline was fundamental for the success!”
Why do leaky balconies occur anyway?
Most leaks occur due to movement in the substrate. As the membrane is in the middle of the construction configuration it is impossible to access it for repair. Ongoing movement is expected in the substrate, especially on a timber frame, so the only way to repair a leaky balcony is with a flexible membrane.
With a clear membrane installed on top, it’s easier to identify leaks and to patch repair. It’s estimated that the cost of DIY installation of our Clear Waterproofing Membrane costs LESS THAN 10% of the cost it would be to replace the damaged membrane under the tiles!
