Your SB 721 Questions Answered

“Exterior Elevated Elements” encompass components extending from the building’s exterior walls, such as decks, balconies, stairways, walkways, and railings. These elements, elevated over six feet above ground level, are designed for human use and are primarily supported by wood or wood-based products, along with their associated waterproofing systems.


Existing HOAs must complete initial inspections by January 1st, 2025, and subsequent inspections every nine years thereafter. New HOAs, whose building permits were obtained after January 1, 2020, must conduct inspections within six years of the certificate of occupancy, followed by inspections every nine years thereafter.

SB 721 regulations pertain to Exterior Elevated Elements (EEEs) with a raised walking surface exceeding six feet from ground level, designed for human use, and supported by wood or wood-based materials.

The primary aim of the inspection is to ensure that exterior elevated elements and their associated waterproofing components are safe, operational, and devoid of any hazardous conditions caused by decay, fungus, or improper modifications, thus safeguarding public and occupant well-being.

1. Immediate repairs are recommended if the report identifies hazardous conditions threatening occupant safety or necessitating emergency measures such as shoring or restricting access.
2. Recommendations for corrective action are made for exterior elevated elements not posing an immediate safety risk to occupants.

The responsibility for maintaining exterior elevated elements in a safe and functional state, in accordance with SB 721 inspection requirements, lies with the building owner.

Inspections aim to assess the safety and performance of exterior elevated elements in compliance with standards. The inspector’s report should identify load-bearing components and associated waterproofing systems, detail their current condition and potential threats to resident safety, estimate their future performance and remaining lifespan, and provide recommendations for repairs or replacements.

Destructive testing may be conducted if visual inspections reveal signs of water infiltration into the waterproofing system, posing a risk to load-bearing components.

Sten Engineering offers comprehensive inspections to ensure the safety and compliance of EEE components, aligning with local building codes and regulations.
