Sika Tiling Systemfor Existing Balconies

EXISTING BALCONIES

The penetration of water from exposed surfaces including terraces and balconies is one of the most common causes for the degradation of buildings. Fortunately there are Sika solutions that enable you to repair and upgrade these areas quickly and at a comparatively low cost without completely removing the existing finishes.

After removing any loose existing tiles and grout and thoroughly cleaning the surface, Sika has the complete refurbishment system including thixotropic repair mortars to patch and restore the levels. The waterproofing layer is made with a flexible and durable polymer modified cementitious mortar. The cementitious tile adhesive is also designed for use on fully exposed balconies and areas subject to extreme weather conditions; it is flexible and has a high polymer content, which allows accommodation of movement due to wide and rapid temperature variations. This system also is completed with a flexible cementitious tile grout for external use, with good mechanical and abrasion resistance. These properties are increased by mixing the grout with a special latex. A high performance, one-component, elastic polyurethane sealant is used to seal any moving joints or connections and ensure they also remain watertight.
