Balcony Inspections & Repairs

SB-721 & SB-326 Decks & Balcony Experts!

Earthquakes can exert immense force on structures, and balconies are particularly vulnerable due to their elevated position and exposure to external elements. Neglecting their maintenance and reinforcement may lead to severe consequences during seismic events, endangering occupants, causing significant property damage, and possible loss of life.

Your Building Needs Inspection If...

  •  It is 3+ units (multi-family) with “Exterior Elevated Elements” (EEEs), such as exterior balconies, decks, porches, stairways, walkways, entry structures, or other exterior elements with walking surfaces.
  • EEEs  are over 6ft above ground and use significant wood for support

Your EEE inspection deadline is January 1, 2025!

Don't Wait!

Do you have a building with three or more separate living spaces? If you do, it’s now a legal requirement to inspect and fix any balconies, walkways, stairways, and decks that are outside the building. This rule comes from two laws called SB 721 and SB 326. Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place for help.

SB-721 and SB-326 were created to make sure that balconies, decks, patios, stairways, and walkways in buildings with multiple apartments or a mix of residential and commercial spaces are safe for the public to use.

According to SB-721, if you have an apartment building with three or more living units, you need to have a thorough inspection of all the outside elevated structures (like balconies and stairways) done by January 1, 2025, and then every 6 years after that.

For condominiums and buildings managed by homeowner associations (HOAs), SB-326 requires an inspection of all the outside elevated structures to be completed by January 1, 2025, and then every 9 years after that.

  2. Waterproofing Elements

Inspection Access Doors

Commercial grade waterproof inspection access doors are essential components in various industries and applications where water and moisture protection is paramount. These specialized access doors are designed to provide secure and reliable entry points while preventing water ingress and damage to the surrounding infrastructure. Constructed with high-quality materials such as stainless steel or galvanized steel, these doors are highly resistant to corrosion, ensuring long-lasting performance even in harsh environments. The doors feature robust gaskets and seals to maintain an effective waterproof seal, effectively preventing any leaks or water seepage.

Furthermore, they often come with additional features such as reinforced frames, secure locking mechanisms, and optional insulation to enhance their functionality and thermal efficiency. With their durability, reliability, and waterproof capabilities, commercial grade waterproof inspection access doors are the ideal solution for industries such as pharmaceuticals, food processing, wastewater treatment, marine applications, and more, where protection against water and moisture is vital.
