Back in January 2016 I had a leaking balcony at our private
Back in January 2016 I had a leaking balcony at our private residence. I engaged a builder to strip the existing balcony and had him relay Hardies scyon exterior flooring and he installed it as per the suppliers specifications. I then engaged a tiler to give me a quote on waterproofing the decking and laying of tiles (which I supplied the tiles). He inspected my balcony and I was told that he could undertake the job which included supplying and installing a waterproof membrane to balcony area, expansion joints and supplying of all other materials to complete the job. He undertook the works in March 2016. In June 2017 we had heavy rain on the Saturday, the following day there was water dripping from the underside of the balcony in numerous places and also water leaking through the down lights. I went back to the tiling place where I purchased the tiles and who gave me the name of the tiler to use and they advised he no longer lived in the area and had moved interstate. I finally tracked him down in September 2017 and I sent him an email. I did not get a response until January 2018 when I contacted him again. I explained the situation and he directed me to the web page of the waterproofing membrane that he used. I then contacted this company by email. I received a call back approx a week later and I explained my situation. The rep of the company asked me to contact the tiler and ask him what process he undertook in regards ***** ***** laying and sealing of tiles to which the tiler has not responded yet. During this time, in Dec 2017 I contacted another company called Megaseal who came down and inspected the balcony. They advised that the membrane had failed and there were cracks in the grout where moisture had penetrated through and also inadequate sealing around the perimeter of the tiling. I obtained a quote which is $11,000 and they can repair it by removing the grout and injecting a latex solution into the joints and then regrouting with waterproof grouting. This comes with a 2 year workmanship guarantee and 25 year product guarantee. Because time is of the essence and the more rain we receive the more damage is occurring, I want to engage Megaseal to repair and rectify the problem. If I pay a deposit by this Friday 2/2 they can start the works Monday. My question is - if I engage Megaseal to go ahead have I got any financial recourse from the tiler and/or manufacturer; or if by engaging Megaseal waiving my rights for any compensation? Thanks Rob Masut … read more
