Balcony leaks are notoriously hard to diagnose
The ever increasing popularity of balconies and the thousands upon thousands of apartment towers that have been constructed over the last couple of decades, mean that balcony leaks are one of the most common issues homeowners and builders have to deal with.
'It's the membrane mate'
When a balcony is leaking, most people jump to the conclusion that the membrane must've failed. They spend thousands of dollars ripping up tiles, re-waterproofing and retiling, only to find that when the next downpour comes, it's still leaking.
So they move on to the next 'obvious' solution, again and again. Costs spiral out of control and still the problem doesn't get fixed.
'In my experience diagnosing and repairing leaking balconies – 75% of the time it isn't the membrane'

'We'd had a few issues with leaking balconies, so when I saw this course I thought it was worth checking out. There was one project where we'd already pulled up the tiles and re-waterproofed, only to have it leak again. After doing the course I worked out the leak was coming from a split in the cladding. Fixed that and there hasn't been problem since.
I've used Martin's process since and reckon and saved myself thousands and thousands of dollars.

Martin Speller – Leak Detection and Rectification Expert
‘I’ve spent the last 20 odd years diagnosing and repairing thousands of building leaks. I’ve witnessed first hand, the damage leaks do to buildings and the financial impact they have on their owners and the builders who built them. And, every year the problem gets more widespread.
Through The Leak Professionals training courses, I’m sharing my specialist knowledge and tried and tested processes to help the building industry address the issue head on. My courses focus on getting to the root cause of the problem, quickly and efficiently, and fixing it once and for all’.
Over 20 years in the building and construction industry
I’m a qualified Engineer and spent the early part of my career working as a Building and Construction Engineer and Project Manager. This work allowed me to develop an indepth understanding of building design, structures and materials.
I then used my knowledge and experience to build a successful business helping builders and homeowners address and rectify building defects, quickly and cost-effectively. I’ve always really enjoyed this work, helping people to fix problems once and for all. And, over the last 20 years it’s allowed me to develop and fine-tune innovative, thorough and proven processes for diagnosing and resolving building issues – in particular leaks.
You see, leaks are one of, if not, the biggest issues facing the building industry in Australia and around the world. And the problem keeps getting worse and worse. It is costing the building industry and homeowners billions of dollars every year – largely because very few people have the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to effectively diagnose the source of a leak and resolve it once and for all.
For this reason I have created The Leak Professionals – an online learning platform that allows me to share my knowledge and tried and tested processes with the industry, to help address the issue.
I’ve always looked for quality, innovation and reliability in both my professional and personal life. It’s the kind of person I am and it’s the kind of business I run. And it is these values that underpin The Leak Professionals.
