(High Grade Moisture Resistant)

Thickness (in.) 1" - 1 ½” (depending on width)

HOW TO MEASURE A BALCONY RIM KIT

Measuring your balcony rim consists of providing measurements for the depth, width, and rise. You’ll also need to specify the cut. For clarification regarding the above measurements, please use the above pricing calculator and click on the “?” tool tip next to each measurement for more information.

CHOOSING YOUR BALCONY RIM CUT

Choosing the proper cut begins with how you plan to fasten the balcony rim to your joists. The 3 different cut options we provide include: level, square, and plumb. The level cut is where the balcony rim is cut parallel to the joists. The square cut, normally used for half-circle or S-shaped floor joist rims, will be cut squared to the rim’s radius. The plumb cut, normally used when attached directly to a wall, will be cut perpendicular to the joists. If you require a combination of cuts, such as one end plumbed and the other leveled, please call our office to discuss.

HOW TO INSTALL BALCONY RIM KITS

Installing balcony rims is simply a matter of putting them in place and fastening them to your joists. Yep, it’s really that easy! But for the sake of being thorough, we’ll supply tailored installation instructions to soothe any disbelief.

FAQ

How long does it take to get my balcony rim?

Balcony rim kits normally take 3 to 5 business days to manufacture. Then add a few days for shipping. Figure about a week to a week and a half from date of order.

How do you ship my balcony rim?

Depending upon the size of your balcony rim and/or the size of your total order, it will either ship in boxes via UPS Ground or in a crate via UPS Freight. Once your order has finished processing (usually 1 business day after order), you'll be notified when and how it will ship. If you’d like to know before you order, call us and we’ll let you know.

How do you drywall a balcony rim?

Drywalling a balcony rim is comprised of measuring the curvature, cutting the drywall to the curvature, forming and fastening in place. While we currently don't have a balcony rim drywall video, you can visit our YouTube page and watch some of our other drywall videos. While the application is different, the concepts are the same.

QUICK TIPS

  • Wetting the back of the drywall will make the drywall easier to bend.
  • For a tighter radius, consider using a double layer of either ¼” or ¼” flex drywall.

How do you finish balcony rims?

Drywall, plaster, wood veneer, brick veneer, trim, tile… the list is seemingly endless. Whether you want your balcony rim to have a simple or an ornate finish, the choice is yours. You can also watch our "7 Creative Ideas to Finish Your Ceilings & Archways" YouTube video.

There has never been a design by any of our architects that Archways & Ceilings has not been able to manufacture. Once you have used Archways & Ceilings, you will never want to do the arches and ceilings any other way.

We had a project with a large fireplace that sat against a tall wall. Something was missing from the design so I had the guys at Archways & Ceilings build me a large curved fireplace canopy to create a cool custom feature for this area.  The kit was made to my spec’s and was easy to assemble.  The combination of the straight lines of the fireplace and the bell curve shaped lines of the canopy truly makes this space one of a kind.

Troy Dinger, Project Manager

As a framing contractor, anything with a radius, prior to Archways & Ceilings, meant I or one of my skilled hands would have to build it.  What was time consuming and costly is now easy and affordable.  Their balcony rims transformed what would’ve been a laborsome task into a quick and easy job.
