Slippery, Seeping, Sliding Doors
There are many reasons as to why water may leak inside from sliding doors. One reason may be due to weep holes. These small holes are meant to drain water out of the door tracks, but, when clogged by dirt or debris they may cause water ingress. Another possibility is that the door frame could be improperly sealed. This deterioration can happen over time. Another reason may be that the frame is improper and not well-fitted to the sliding glass door. This may cause undesirable gaps that water can seep through.
This apartment building has shown significant signs of water damage by the sliding doors of the unit. But, the damage was caused by none of the above. BellMont investigated and concluded that the cause of damage in the old apartment complex was due to a lack of waterproofing membrane. The function of a waterproofing membrane would’ve prevented the water from seeping in from underneath the door. Not only was there inadequate waterproofing membrane but the ground levels of both internal and external platforms were flush, encouraging water to drain inside rather than off the balcony. There was evident water damage in the swollen floorboards and further damage upon investigation seen in the concrete.
To rectify this issue, BellMont has recommended to remove the damaged flooring and to repair the concrete cancer located in the balcony ceiling. BellMont also advised to install a waterproofing membrane, in compliance with Australian Standards, at an upturn to stop further water ingress.
