Pasadena Home has Unlevel Balcony Floor
This beautiful home in a newer part of Pasadena showed moisture and wood rot underneath the balcony and at the arched window above the backyard door. Pictures below reveal several areas of wood rot discovered once we started the demo. This job presented many challenges. One challenge was to move the right-side brick column that was resting on the roof to sit atop the balcony instead. The poorly constructed column exposed the wood rafters to moisture, which caused leaks into the master bedroom. Another challenge was the unlevel concrete balcony floor that met up with the two doors at the same level. The outer arched wall supporting the balcony was 1.25 inches higher than the main wall of the house, causing rainwater to flow down and collect at the door areas. Once the concrete was demolished, the wood floor beneath revealed shoddy construction, moisture collection and wood rot.
As seen in the before pictures, the arched window above the first floor door was leaking, so the brick around it had to be demolished and the window reconstructed. Once all these exterior repairs were executed, the interior sheetrock had to be replaced, textured, and finally repainted. The clients now enjoy their newly-constructed balcony which includes Trex flooring and black wrought iron railing.
