Before you do finish the top of the balcony, you need to take care of waterproofing. Without this preparatory stage, the coating will not be durable, and all the efforts of the stylish design will be in vain.
Waterproofing is needed for both open and for glazed balconies. It completely eliminates leakage between the seams. If the balcony of the neighbors is glazed on top, it is enough to treat your concrete surface with silicone sealant to prevent water from entering the porous structure of the concrete. The balcony on the top floor must be protected and above and below the concrete slab. From above, as a rule, protection gives the visor to the roof of the house, provided by the developer. You only need to protect the concrete surface from below.
