Unsafe awnings and balconies can collapse if they deteriorate or are overloaded. Owners are responsible for keeping awnings in good order constantly, including in storms. You must not place heavy items signs, air conditioners or any other Item on awnings or balconies without approval. Awnings or balconies showing signs of deterioration, and those more than 10 years old, should be regularly inspected by a structural engineer. A structural engineer is specialised to look for fault with load-bearing walls, foundations and other areas which can have a deleterious effect on the building’s structural integrity. Our structural engineer’s report aims to reduce your maintenance bill.
