The Process of a Balcony Inspection


Balconies are an important feature of many buildings, providing additional living space and a place to enjoy the outdoors. However, balconies can also pose a risk to building occupants if they are not properly maintained or are in poor condition. That's why it's important to have a balcony inspected regularly to ensure its safety and stability.

California law requires that specific balconies be inspected everywhere. The primary distinction between the two laws is that SB326 relates to condominium owners while SB721 applies to apartment owners.

Q: What is a Balcony Inspection?

A: A balcony inspection is an evaluation of the condition and safety of a balcony, performed by our licensed inspector/router. They will also look for signs of damage, as well as water intrusion and other factors that can contribute to deterioration.

Q: Why is a Balcony Inspection Important?

A: Balcony inspections are important because they help identify potential hazards and ensure that balconies are safe for use. This helps protect the safety of building occupants and reduce the risk of accidents or injuries.

The Process:

  1. Pre-Inspection Preparation: We will route the building by taking note of the amount of elevated balconies over 6 ft, length of the walkways, and the number of stairways. We will also be taking necessary photos for any repairs needed.
  2. Inspection of the Deck: We will evaluate the condition of the deck, including the surface and the edges, and check for signs of wear and damage, such as cracks or warping.
  3. Final Report: After the inspection, our team will provide a proposal detailing the condition of the balcony and any recommendations for repairs or upgrades.

Balcony inspections are an important part of maintaining the safety and stability of balconies. By understanding the process of a balcony inspection and the reasons why it's important, building owners and occupants can help ensure that their balconies are safe and secure.
