Our business, Balcony1, recently completed an SB721 inspection for a client in Santa Monica, California. The client, Michaela Manoucheri, chose us for the job because of our experience and expertise in conducting such inspections.
The inspection involved borehole drilling to assess the condition of the wood framing inside of the balconies. This was necessary because the client wanted to make sure that the balconies were in compliance with SB721.
The process was not without its challenges, but our team was able to overcome them and successfully complete the inspection. The client was very satisfied with the results and we are proud to have helped her ensure the safety of her property.

We at Balcony1 were recently tasked with conducting an SB721 balcony inspection for Michaela Manoucheri's apartment building located in beautiful Santa Monica, California. As a company with over 20 years of construction and design experience, we possess the expertise necessary to thoroughly inspect and assess the condition of elevated exterior elements such as balconies.
The Importance of SB721 Inspections
SB721 is a California state law that requires property owners to inspect their elevated exterior elements every six years to ensure their structural integrity and safety. These inspections are crucial because they can identify potential issues before they become major problems, which could lead to costly repairs or even catastrophic failures.
Our Unique Approach to Inspections
In this particular project, our team employed borehole drilling as part of our thorough SB721 inspection process. This technique allowed us to assess the condition of the wood framing inside the balconies without causing any significant damage or disruption to the structure. The information gleaned from these boreholes provided invaluable insight into the health and safety of the balconies.
Borehole Drilling: A Key Component
- Allows for assessment of wood framing without causing significant damage
- Provides insight into structural integrity and safety
- Helps to identify potential issues before they become major problems
Overcoming Challenges and Ensuring Success
During the course of the inspection, we encountered a few challenges. One such challenge was gaining access to some of the harder-to-reach balconies on the property. However, our experienced team was able to devise innovative solutions that enabled us to complete the inspection without any hindrance.
Another challenge we faced was coordinating the inspection schedule with the tenants of the building. We understand that such inspections can be an inconvenience for residents, so we took great care to plan our work around their schedules and ensure minimal disruption.
A Satisfied Client and a Safer Property
Upon completion of the SB721 balcony inspection, we provided Michaela with a comprehensive report detailing our findings and recommendations. The information obtained from the borehole drilling allowed us to accurately assess the condition of the balconies and provide valuable guidance on any necessary repairs or maintenance.
Michaela was extremely satisfied with our work, and she appreciated our professionalism and commitment to ensuring her property's compliance with SB721. As a result of our thorough inspection, she can now rest assured that her apartment building's balconies are safe and structurally sound.
