You can see that the plant and cracks are gone. They did a nice job making sure that all the cracks were sealed, no water getting in this year. even the crack on the wall got coated again. The end result is no more leaks in our bedroom ceiling! Soon we can redo the ceiling (it has some significant water damage to it). I think the value of our apartment will go up about 10-15% and the total cost of the balcony and ceiling repairs will probably be more like 1-3%. Three cheers for home equity!
