Water ingress - Riversdale rd HAWTHORN
This high end property of 61 apartments was suffering from water ingress from balconies and planter boxes over many years. This was caused by the lack of waterproofing to the balconies and planter boxes when originally constructed.
To repair and stop leaking balconies and planter boxes
Works carried out
Our task was to strip all the tiles from the balconies and common areas above the underground carparks and empty all the effected planter boxes. New screeds and membranes installed before retiling of the balconies and re filling of the planter boxes could then be performed. New rain-heads where also required to take the excess water away.
Apply new membrane in accordance with engineered specifications and test for leaks.
Apply screed to effected area to allow run off of water.
Apply second membrane to top of screed for extra waterproofing. We test for leaks to assure no future issues.
Tile or retile area to finish off and then test once again for leaks.
