TILINGNEW BALCONIES

TILING NEW BALCONIES

The build-up and installation of tiled finishes on new balconies requires careful design and execution, in order to prevent commonly occurring problems such as uneven floors, inadequate drainage and/or incomplete waterproofing and detailing at the perimeters, etc.

The Sika installation system starts with the waterproofing layer, which uses a flexible, fiber-reinforced mortar that can be applied just 24 – 48 hours after the floor screed has been laid. Then the special cementitious tile adhesive is applied, which is specially designed for use on fully exposed balconies that are subject to extreme weather conditions. This is flexible, with a high polymer content to accommodate movement due to both wide and rapid temperature variations. The cement based tile grout is also flexible with a low modulus of elasticity, in order to minimize stress transfer to the substrate, whilst retaining good mechanical strengths and abrasion resistance. A high performance, elastic sealant is used to seal any moving joints or connections and ensure that they also remain watertight.
