Balconies and terraces are exposed to the rain as intensely as the roofs. Nevertheless, while every element of the roof is being solved by the constructor in the last detail, the balcony waterproof insulation is a far-reaching issue.
However, this will be a future problem. The balcony or terrace are subject to:
Another risk factor is the load. Whether the owner has a tomato pots on the terrace or even sets up a roof car park, the tile or other surface will push on the waterproofing layer placed below. To prevent the damage, carefully choose the entire structure.
A suitable complement to the balcony waterproofing is a studded membrane. Thanks to its shaping, it forms a vaulted cavity between the waterproof insulation and the arched cavity tiles. This studded drainage membrane protects the waterproofing layer against mechanical damage caused by eventual utilizable load and reliably drains the water out of the balcony or terrace insulation. The air gap also speeds up the drying of balcony insulation and the tiles and thus improves the insulation safety of the total structure.
