Balcony Privacy Screens

At last week’s AGM, there was some discussion about privacy screens. Several people, particularly those on the north side of the building, have expressed interest in installing a screen on their balcony.

The Decor Committee has been discussing the issue for some time and would like to encourage residents to follow certain guidelines in order to keep uniformity of the building.

  • Screens should be wood (i.e. cedar or bamboo) or dark/espresso in colour.
  • Screens should not extend more than 30″ above the top of the balcony.
  • Screens should be securely fastened without being permanently fixed to the concrete balcony walls as per the condominium’s bylaws.

A few residents have already installed screens on their balconies, and we thought it might be helpful for others to see what they’ve done. Here are a couple of pictures, which might give you ideas for your own balcony:

Sam and Judy recently purchased a bamboo screen for about $150 at Home Hardware in Niagara. It’s approximately 8 feet long and 5′ tall, and successfully blocks wind and provides a sense of privacy.

Roy purchased two three-panel cedar screens from Home Depot. The item can be found on their website: click here.
