Problems
Deteriorated balconies resulting from reinforcing steel corrosion displayed spalling of the concrete and compromised post-tension cables at the grouted live end stressing pockets. Damage continued back into unit interiors under sliding glass door sill tracks and balcony decks retained standing water due to lack of positive slope and obstruction from tight screen enclosure frames.
