Balcony on your own can be done in two most common ways. For example, to strengthen it with iron supports at the bottom. This type of balcony is suitable for a private house and for balconies located on the first floors of apartment buildings.
In the ground under the planned balcony are mounted two metal rods, which are reinforced with concrete below. The tops of the rods will prop up the future balcony. Then the metal structure is welded, which can be ordered separately from the specialists, or it can be welded by the welding machine on site. The design should consist of the sides of the parapet, the front and the floor surface of the balcony.
This design is attached to the house. The metal rods supporting it are also screwed to the bottom frame of the balcony.Additionally, the balcony is attached to the wall with two or three metal rails. Each rail passes inside the building, bent at it at a right angle. The free end of the rails supports the construction of the balcony below.
A formwork is being constructed on the balcony floor, into which a layer of concrete is poured (up to 10-15 cm thick). Concrete hardens and the owner gets ready draft balcony. This is followed by a decorative balcony at the request of the owner.
If the balcony is planned to be built on the second and higher floors of an apartment building, where it will not be possible to strengthen it with rods from below - the second method of balcony construction is used.
From the apartment (from the floor level) 3-4 metal rails are put forward on the street. In the apartment they need to be strengthened by bending over the wall. From above (at the point of height of the balcony) two metal rods, also drawn from the apartment, will support the metal structure of the balcony from the sides.
The welding machine prepares the metal frame of the balcony. All metal holders on the side of the apartment must be carefully bolted and welded to it. Then act as in the first embodiment. On the floor of the balcony is poured a layer of concrete.After it dries the walls, the floors of the balcony can be trimmed with decorative materials, glazing it at discretion, and so on.
