Pacific Coast Real Estate Inspections

Our parent company, Christopher's Construction Inc, has been building luxury homes in and around the bay area for almost three decades, and has performed countless 604 compliance inspections throughout the city of San Francisco. Our building expertise from the ground up allows us to effectively identify any visual deterioration of exterior elevated elements, such as decks and stair systems, as required by the new California law SB-721, and San Francisco's housing code Section 604. You can rest assured that our inspection team has the industry knowledge and professional experience needed for a comprehensive evaluation of your property.

Inspection Process

Our inspection process is quick and easy. If all exterior elevated elements are accessible from the outside of the building, you don't even need to be present for the inspection. Any properties with decks or balconies only accessible through tenant units will require a building representative present with our inspector.


Our systematic approach is designed to document all the required elements under California law SB-721. and/or San Francisco Section 604 Housing Code. We carefully examine every exterior deck, balcony, stairway, fire escape or loadbearing structure to provide you with a comprehensive photo report and assessment. Providing all the necessary reporting and documentation to property owners and agents to keep their buildings in compliance.
