Planters on balconies and decks

Updated: Mar 1, 2023

Planters on balconies can be susceptible to several types of damage, including:

  1. Water damage: Improper drainage or overwatering can lead to water damage to the balcony surface, as well as root rot in the plants.

  2. Freeze-thaw damage: In climates with freeze-thaw cycles, planters can expand and contract, causing cracking or splitting of the material.

  3. Pest damage: Planters can attract pests such as rodents or insects, which can cause damage to the plants or balcony surface.

  4. Weight damage: Overloading a balcony with heavy planters can cause damage to the balcony structure and create a safety hazard.

To prevent these types of damage, it is important to properly maintain your balcony planters, ensuring proper drainage, secure placement, and regular pest control. It is also a good idea to consult with a professional contractor to determine the weight limits of your balcony and to ensure that your balcony planters are properly secured.

It is imperative to hire the best hands to ensure safety and of course, compliance.
