Balcony Installation Basics :

Step 1 : Set foundations- Using our set-out drawings, dig and set concrete footings to suit the post positions. 

- Foundations are typically 600 x 600mm and should be allowed time to cure before the balcony installation. 

Step 2 : Install the backplate- Centralise and level the backplate on the house wall and fully fix in place.

Step 3 :Assemble balcony structure- Bolt together the rest of the structure in accordance with the drawings. This should be assembled loose to start with then levelled and tightened up accordingly once all in place.

Step 4 : Install the decking- Most balconies are supplied with composite decking, pre cut to size. Lay out your decking and screw into place ensuring equal and even gaps between pieces. 

Step 5: Install the balustrade- Screw the base channels to the ring beam using the pre-drilled and tapped holes. The glass can then be inserted and secured with the click-lock easy clamp system. 

Step 6: Enjoy – Crack out the table and chairs, pot up a plant and enjoy your coffee or glass of wine as desired!
