Structural balconies vary in size and shape. They can be rectangle or curved. They typically project out 12-16” for standing only or they can be 4-5’ deep for sitting. The rail design is independent of the type of balcony and we offer numerous options of railing styles. The floors are typically made from bar grating to allow ice & snow to pass right through. For larger balconies, the floor can made of solid tread plate. It’s more difficult to add a structural balcony onto an existing home. To properly install the balcony, we need access to the interior wall framing. In this situation, the client & CMC would need to coordinate with a construction company for proper installation and weather proofing.
