What type of balconies do we offer?
We are experts in structural engineering and manufacture and can offer an unrivalled service in balcony installations.
We offer a start to finish service for a bespoke balcony manufactured and installed by us. All we need is your input on which style and design you are looking for, and we are ready to get to work!
Made from structural steel, the design of a balcony can be adapted to suit any taste. A stainless steel balcony provides a sleek addition to your property with impressive durability. Alternatively, glass balconies offer a modern look that lets in more light and gives better views of your surroundings. We have a long history of steel and glass manufacture that we bring to the construction and installation of your ideal balcony, from the floor to the balustrades.
To construct something genuinely unique to you and your property, the customer can choose more minor touches, such as the railings and paint colour.
All of our balconies are constructed using the highest quality materials, such as marine grade (316) stainless steel and toughened glass for extra safety and durability. Powder coating is used on the steel, fittings and railings for long term protection from the elements and prevent paint chipping over time.

What's involved in the design stage of a stainless steel balcony?
Upon initial contact with us, we will discuss your needs to understand and find the best possible balcony for you and your home. We will also thoroughly inspect your property to check for any potential issues and evaluate the proposed installation's placement and size.
We will continue to offer additional advice and assistance during this first stage of the process so you have a clear idea of what to expect in the installation stage and ensure you are happy with the design of your new balcony.

Before you get started with your steel balcony
Adding any type of balcony to your home is a significant investment, so it's essential to consider every aspect before you take the leap.
A balcony is a large steel structure constructed onto the side of a building. Due to it being a substantial structure, it needs to be designed, manufactured and installed safely following all the correct UK building regulations and guidelines. But don't worry, our fully trained staff are well equipped to meet all the necessary requirements to get your balcony approved and installed. IFab aims to build the perfect balcony in terms of looks, practicality and safety every time.
It's important to remember that a steel balcony, or any other type of balcony, will require planning permission from your local council. You will need to submit a planning application form and a fee to your planning office to request permission. This process may also require evaluations of the property and its proposed changes, along with a certificate of ownership and a statement explaining the work you wish to carry out.
Although this stage may sound complicated or problematic, our team is here to guide you through every step of the way, making the process simple, quick and stress-free!
