The luxury of living on a esplanade provides us with amazing views, walks on the beach, relaxing sea breezes, and of course the relentless salt spray that comes with the might of the ocean crashing in nearby. Humid & salty air means one thing to property owners: extra and regular exterior maintenance.
Here in Middleton, South Australia is a 2 story home, just 15 years old with a large entertaining balcony. Beneath the balcony the joist hangers have become severely rusted losing majority of the brackets structural integrity, so in this case each hanger needs replacing urgently before a possible balcony collapse.
Exterior painting maintenance is required regularly in coastal areas as this is the first defense to weathering and rusting to metal products.
