A balcony (or terrace) is an area above ground level that extends beyond the face of a building. Due to this placement, it is subject to weathering from wind, rain, sleet, snow and extreme temperatures. Balconies are constructed with a combination of concrete and steel, which can gradually degrade and corrode in certain environments. In coastal areas of Nassau, Suffolk and Queens, salt, which can accelerate the effects of corrosion, exacerbates these conditions.
As the steel and concrete that support a balcony break down, it will eventually lose its structural integrity. This could lead to catastrophic failure and, in some cases, life-threatening injuries. Every once in a while, there is an article in the media about injuries or fatalities resulting from a balcony that crashed down, because of its deteriorating condition.
Boccia Inc. has provided waterproofing and balcony repair services in Queens and many parts of Long Island, like Long Beach. This has helped them establish an expertise that is unrivaled in the industry. In fact, Boccia recently completed a multi-year project, a high-rise apartment complex in Long Beach. During the project, they had to repair and replace all of the balcony lines, which had weakened and become unstable from the effects of adjacent, salt-laden ocean air.
Utilizing the finest materials and methods available, Boccia can both repair and protect these terraces from the harsh New York climate. This process will make a balcony safer and last longer. That’s why, if you’re in need of balcony repair or waterproofing services, you should turn to Boccia Inc.
