Wahoo Decks Expands Prefabricated Balcony Options

The Wahoo Complete™ Balcony System by Wahoo Decks, a leading manufacturer of outdoor decking products in the US, is quickly becoming the go-to solution for multifamily and commercial building developments.

This week, Wahoo Decks has expanded its balcony options to include a mesh rail infill and new finished ceiling options. The new mesh infill allows for an open feel with a more modern look, while the underdecking upgrade option allows specifiers to choose between composite boards, aluminum decking, or wood deck boards to create a more finished look.

“Mesh infill railing has become a popular look that is being frequently specified by architects on multifamily projects. The addition of the new mesh infill will allow our customers greater creativity in their projects,” said Kyle Graf, Multifamily Account Manager for Wahoo Decks.

Why Are Prefabricated Aluminum Balcony Systems So Popular?

Why Are Prefabricated Aluminum Balcony Systems So Popular?

Adding pre-fabricated aluminum balcony systems to your existing structure delivers many benefits. People prefer apartments and offices with access to the outdoors. It may seem frivolous, but humans value their time in nature. And your tenants on the sixth floor deserve an outdoor space as much as your lucky ground floor tenants.

Bolting on aluminum balconies is a simple solution to this basic human need. Here are more pre-fabricated aluminum balcony system facts that make them so popular.

Aluminum Balconies Provide Outdoor Living Spaces

A balcony creates a new outdoor living space which is something we can all use more of. What better way to enhance a property than to provide a nice place to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine? People on the ground floor have it easy. But those of us on the second and tenth floors also deserve to have an outdoor space to relax and enjoy. Pre-fabricated balcony kits are an easy solution to this vital need.

Aluminum Balconies Increase Property Value

Pre-fabricated aluminum balconies are a smart investment. Installing them will boost your property value right away. And guess what? You can charge tenants a little more for units with balconies. Those add-ons will pay for themselves in no time with your higher lease rates.

Pre-Fabricated Aluminum Balcony Systems Are Easy to Install

A fabricator will use your building’s dimensions to create balcony systems just for you. This makes the balconies easy to install. It takes a few support beams and some sturdy bolts, and your balconies are ready to go for many years of enjoyment. There’s no need to shut down operation for weeks while your contractor installs the units.

Aluminum Balconies Will Last for Decades

Unlike wood balconies and railings, aluminum will never rot away. Aluminum will withstand decades of punishment from Mother Nature. It never has to be re-sealed to keep water out. It will never give you splinters in your feet. Aluminum balconies are easy to maintain and will last for many years on your property.

Some Aluminum Balconies Offer Weather Protection Below

There are a few aluminum deck systems on the market that channel water away from the surface. One example is the DryJoist decking system. These decks serve a secondary purpose by providing shelter from the rain below the deck. Say you install balconies above each other. The balconies below have built-in umbrellas provided by their neighbors’ decks.
