Renewing a Rusty Balcony, Leigh-on-Sea, Case Study
Replacing an old wrought iron balcony with a glass and aluminium one from Balcony Systems has not only given Ivan Starkey clear sea views with much lower maintenance; it's also helped to cure his leaking flat roof.
He adds: "I like everything about the Balcony Systems product; clarity, very light, very nice and so easy to keep clean. There's no maintenance - an essential factor when living next to the sea - as the balustrade resists the corrosive effects of salt. The service was absolutely fantastic too; I would certainly recommend the company."
Anchored with special stainless steel brackets and with no clamps to spoil the view, the new 20 metre-long balcony at his Leigh-on-Sea home makes the most of coastal vistas from two living rooms.
Says Ivan: "The old wrought iron balcony's upright supports were screwed to the roof joists and eventually caused water penetration through hairline gaps. Installing a new balcony has solved this problem.
