Our condo was built in the early ‘80s. The developer
didn’t have the foresight to include a slope or pitch when
balconies. (My building has 6 floors, for example). Needless to say, when it
rains, water enters through the screen and sits on the tiles until it dries, or
I get rid of it by me sweeping it out of the balcony through the screen. This
is not my idea of fun. I’ve contacted a roofing company about installing gutters but because of the way
our roof was constructed, this is not an option. I was told to contact a flooring company, and that perhaps they could add a
slope to the balcony.
Since I am on my board, I would like to discuss this for all units. Many people
complain about the standing water. We are a small association, with two
buildings, which total 86 units. One building has 6 floors, the other has 4. Is
flooring company our only option? Adding 'weep holes' was a waste of
time. I’d appreciate any suggestions you may have.
