We couldn’t resist a trip to ‘Stonehouse’, an area of Plymouth, to tackle a series of leaking ground floor balconies. Water was affecting the communal staircases, storage areas and carpark. Our inspection revealed the specified Volclay external Type A waterproofing had been installed to the internal face of the concrete walls and therefore had no effect.
The NHBC claims consultant agreed with our assessment to waterproof each balcony with Newton Acriflex Winter. We also reinforced some construction joints within the car parking area to control free lime dripping onto the cars below.
