Inspect the walls / surfaces to a distance of 1ft (30 cm) around your window aperture. Look out for any protruding features on or around the opening that your balcony is going to fix to such as over-size window sills, drain pipes, cables or stonework that might clash with the balcony frame.

Be aware too if you have less than 1ft (30 cm) of space around the balcony area which might cause problems when fitting.

Don’t panic if you see any such issues as we can (and have) worked around all sorts of unusual obstacles in the past. Just get in touch (and ideally arrange to send us a photograph) if you would like any advice. We might need to quote you for a bespoke solution but don’t hesitate; it costs less than you think!
