Terraces and balconies, which are a major feature of many buildings' outdoor areas, require various functional measures in order to address a range of issues.
Waterproofing is required to prevent water seepage and also protect the lower levels, while they must also be able to drain rainwater coming from upper levels.
When balconies and terraces are built over occupied rooms, they also need to be thermally insulated to limit the transfer of heat and cold and protect the floor covering.
Lastly, to stop tiles breaking as a result of movement in the screed (which, in addition to being an aesthetic issue, can lead to more serious problems, such as water ingress), uncoupling is essential, namely ensuring that the tiles are suitably separated from the screed underneath.
TeMa offers specialist solutions to cater to all these requirements.
