Balcony flashing is a type of roofing material that is used to protect balconies and balconettes from water damage. It is typically made of metal or a waterproof material, such as rubber or PVC, and is used to seal the connection between the balcony and the building. Balcony flashing is installed at the base of the balcony and at the transition points between the balcony and the building's walls or roof. It helps to prevent water from seeping into the building's structure and causing damage, such as mold growth or rot. There are several types of balcony flashing, including:
Step flashing: This type of flashing is used to protect the transition between the balcony and the building's wall.
Counter flashing: This type of flashing is used to protect the transition between the balcony and the building's roof.
Base flashing: This type of flashing is used to protect the base of the balcony and prevent water from entering the building through the floor.
Balcony flashing is an important part of protecting the balcony and the building from water damage. If the flashing becomes damaged or deteriorates over time, it should be replaced promptly to prevent water from infiltrating the building's structure. It is important to note that the installation of balcony flashing should only be performed by a professional contractor who is familiar with the local building codes and safety requirements, as well as the best practices for balcony flashing installation.
