Our advice to owner occupiers, building managers and strata managers is this: Keep an eye out for obvious signs of balcony disrepair. It may be nothing, but having an engineer or structural repair specialist attend earlier than later could go a long way to minimising the damage and thus minimising the cost of repair.

Engineering is a diverse discipline. Covering everything from fluids, to aerospace, to chemical engineering, to structural and even building remediation, engineering is part of everyday life. So, it should come as no surprise that you cannot just rely on any type of engineer when it comes to getting assistance to determine the rectification required on your building.

The presence of rust is a manifestation of corrosion, a potentially serious issue which can lead to structural issues. Because rust is a swelling on the metal, it pushes the surrounding materials outwards, causing more moisture to get in which thereby weakens the strength of the structural material. Thus, much like the iceberg that sank the titanic, if you only look at the parts you see, you will miss the devastation that awaits under the surface.

As with all things in life, there are specialists for most things. We are specialists in larger structures – we understand them, we know what is required to fix their issues and we have the equipment and capacity to perform the required work. Learn what the difference is between structural repair for larger buildings vs smaller ones.
Concrete repair and building in general can be a complex subject. Many terms are sefl explanatory, though many others are less so. In this piece we steer clear of some of the more well used terms and focus on the terms which are used less often, but which are good to know.
