Increase the value of your building
Skimping on the planning phase of any renovation can also cause problems down the road. Poorly designed or unappealing balconies and staircases can detract from the look and value of your building. On the other hand, professionally designed balconies and stairs can create curb appeal that draws prospects into the building to rent or buy. Investing in a designer or architect can make the end product that much better. And that improves your bottom line.
Safe balconies and staircases
At one time balconies and staircases were made from 2 main materials: wrought iron and wood. Today there are so many more materials that are safe, durable and pleasing to both the eye and the budget. You can choose from a great range of balcony and staircase materials:
- Prefabricated concrete
- Acrylic cement
- Treated or synthetic wood
- Natural wood
- Natural or man-made stone
- New materials from recycled material
- and other materials that stand up to the elements and last.
The pitfalls of poor workmanship
If you’ve ever owned property, you know that finding the right person for construction or renovation work is not easy. All too often, you find out that the person you hired isn’t delivering on promises made: timelines aren’t respected, budget overruns are common and the quality of the work is substandard. In the case of balconies and stairs, poor workmanship is not only undesirable, it’s dangerous.
