Adding a balcony later: costs and planning

Some homeowners would like to have a nice balcony afterwards, where they can make themselves comfortable in the summer. The subsequent cultivation is possible in most cases, the costs vary.

Where is the best place for the balcony?

Anchor balconies with only two supports in the front area are fixed with fixed wall anchors, they load the facade with a part of their weight and are already a bit more expensive.

Without supports cantilevered cantilever balconies come out. They are fixed by means of tie rods and brackets to the respective floor ceiling. This solution is only suitable for well-supporting facades and usually the most expensive variant. The balcony area is limited by design.

These costs apply to the subsequent installation

You pay in addition to the balcony construction and a balcony railing according to your requirements. Both costs are variable, depending on the design and material. Expect a price of 2,000 EUR for a small, self-supporting Vorstellbalkon without railing.

A simple wooden construction with two columns costs you about 3,500 EUR, for larger balconies and special requirements, the price increases. The cheapest railing is made of plastic and costs about 20 EUR per running meter.

A balcony railing made of Plexiglas costs at least 25 EUR per meter, but here comes a metal substructure. For a railing made of laminated glass you pay from about 80 EUR, stainless steel costs you even from 300 EUR per running meter. Nach Adding a south-facing balcony later: Cost example
