A juliet balcony (also called a faux balcony) is just a guardrail that keeps you from falling out of an exterior door when it is open. When used on the exterior of a home, it serves two purposes. It aids in security protection to deter intruders, but it can also add curb appeal. There are numerous design options that are both functional and beautiful. A faux balcony rail is not meant to stand on and does not have a floor, they are strictly a guardrail. They only project out 4-6” off the building and are typically mounted to the surface of the brick or stone. If the application is new construction, we then like to coordinate with the contractor to ensure they provide access to the floor joists or the structural framing surrounding the door before the exterior finishes on the home are complete.
