Considering a balcony addition for your home or thinking of updating your existing balcony?
Castlegate Home Improvements can build or renovate your balcony.
From the initial quotation consultation where we discuss your design ideas and learn about your needs and wants to lodging the council applications including engineering to the construction and finally to the clean up, we see your project through from start to finish.
Constructing in timber or stainless steel or a combination of both materials, with a roof or without, Castlegate Home Improvements can create a balcony to suit your home and your style.
Whether you prefer a “Juliet” balcony or with a staircase, a long veranda style with a patio roof or a simple style with support posts that bend into your garden and offer that always desirable additional space underneath, there are many options and we can help you decide what will be practical and structurally safe for your home and family.
For added luxury, why not have the ceiling lined with stunning timber lining or install beautiful decking on the floor that will definitely add warmth and ambiance.
Castlegate Home Improvements also builds the necessary balustrades in timber or stainless steel as well as optional extras such as timber screens and bench seats that will ensure your balcony is safe, private and functional.
Council permits – Your new balcony build will require council approvals and for an alteration such as a roof cover or size of the balcony, a new building permit may also be required. Being a small local business that cares for clients projects, we take the time to help with the lodging council application forms and can even draw the plans the the building permit submission.
Does my new balcony build/alteration require an Engineers report? The short answer is yes, more than likely. The council will require signed plans from an engineer to confirm the balcony does comply to the BCA – Building Codes of Australia. This is not a bad thing. You want to know your balcony is safe, sturdy and complies with the building regulations and, thats the only kind of balcony we build!
We are a hands on business doing the leg work for our clients, so all you need to do is decide whether to have a cuppa tea or a glass of wine while enjoying your own bit of luxury.
