Balju for the terrace - easy or difficult?

Many people want to install a balju on the terrace - after all, a balju installed on the terrace is neat and easy to use. But is it easy or difficult to install the balustrade in connection with the terrace? Read in our article what kind of things you should think about when you are considering installing a deck on the terrace.

Which is better: sunken into the terrace or mounted on top?

Balju can be installed on the terrace either embedded or mounted on top of the terrace deck.

No matter how you install the panel, it will work the foundations of pallu to make under the terrace properly. The foundations must have a flat, compact and frost-free base, for example concrete casting or gravel base. If the soil is soft, the pile may sink or tilt even right after the first summer.

A sink embedded in the terrace

The sunroof embedded in the terrace is a stylish and easy-to-use alternative for sunroof installation. Balju can be embedded either in a new or an old terrace. When sinking into the old terrace, make a hole the size of a tile in the terrace planking and check that the foundations under the tile are properly made.

It is said that many people think that a sunken sunken terrace is easier to use, because the sunken edges are lower and it is then easier to get into it. After all, there are also pallu completely embedded in the terrace, in which case almost no edges of the pallu are exposed. Such an installation is possible if the space under the terrace allows. However, for the sake of safety, it is recommended to leave at least small edges above the terrace platform, so that, for example, children or pets do not accidentally fall into the pool.

A roof installed on top of the terrace

A roof installed on top of the terrace requires a lot from the structure of the terrace. For example 8–10 people, a pool full of water and bathers is very heavy - up to around 2000-3000 kilos. Under such a large weight load, boards in poor condition or a poorly made terrace frame can fail. However, you shouldn't be afraid of installing a log on top of the terrace, as long as you make sure that the structure of the terrace can withstand the massive load.

Terrace around the patio

If the fence has already been firmly installed somewhere other than the terrace, but you dream of a neat and uniform yard, instead of moving the fence, you should build a terrace area around it. However, the danger may be that you may get hungry while eating and you will soon find yourself building a large, unified terrace area or at least a passageway between them. It's not a funnier idea at all, after all, a unified sitting area increases comfort.

Where should I place the bowl on the terrace?

There are many flavors, but it's good to think about placing a pall on the terrace from a practical point of view. For example, think about how you can most easily handle filling, emptying and heating the pan.

A sump installed on the edges of the terrace is much easier to maintain and empty than a sump placed in the middle of the terrace. You have to be careful with the heating stove in particular – it has to be placed on a non-combustible surface and far enough away from the wall and ceiling materials.

Please also remember that the sunken tile in the terrace needs a so-called a maintenance hatch, through which it is easier to empty the bucket, for example. For emptying, you can also install an additional pipe so that the water can be directed further away from the terrace area.
