Does your balcony need repair or updated structural support in accordance with SB-721 or SB-326?

“The Balcony Bill” which was signed into law back in September 2018 requires that all balconies, decks, and stairs that rely on wood structural support in multi-family buildings (with at least three units) in California must be inspected and repaired.

At Good Life Construction, we provide top-ranked balcony repair services that comply with the new balcony inspection law which states that balconies and decks in condos, townhomes, and apartments must be repaired and inspected.

We are always ready to assist you in ensuring your investment is up to California code Balcony Repair SB-721.

California's Balcony Inspection Laws: SB-721 and SB-326 Explained

SB-721 requires that all porches, stairways, walkways, decks, and any other elevated entry structures that are six feet above the ground and made from wood or wood-based elements must be inspected by qualified professionals.

Initial inspections must be completed by January 2025, and subsequent inspections should be completed every six years and should be done by a Certified Professional, such as Licensed Structural Engineers, Balcony Repair Contractors, or Architects to evaluate load-bearing components and associated waterproofing elements. This will enable informed judgment of both current and expected future performance while estimating projected service life.

SB-326 requires condo associations to have their exterior elements that are six feet above the ground visually inspected by an experienced Licensed Structural Engineer or Architect. All HOAs should have conducted their exterior element inspection, the initial assessment, by January 1, 2025. Subsequent evaluations will be required every nine years in conjunction with reserve study examinations.

For condo associations established after January 1, 2020, the first inspection should take place within six years of the reception of the Certificate of Occupancy. After that initial benchmark is met, follow-up inspections will be scheduled at regular intervals according to prevailing regulations (approximately once every nine years).
