Q: Who is responsible for scheduling and conducting balcony inspections?

Q: What if I am unable to fix the problems identified during the inspection?
A: If you are unable to fix the problems identified during the inspection, it is important to consult with our professional engineers or contractors to determine the best course of action. In some cases, it may be necessary to close the balcony until the necessary repairs can be made.
