Pre purchase building inspection performed at Encounter Bay in Adelaide’s southern suburbs is a renovators delight.
One of the main defects that was found was in regards to the large entertaining balcony. From time to time you hear on the news that a balcony has collapsed and several loved ones were hurt or worse.
Regularly check over your balcony or have a experienced building inspector inspect it. Issues that can lead to injury are timber rot from lack of painting maintenance etc. balustrades that do no comply with Australia standards.
This balcony in particular suffers from timber fungal rot.
