What does it mean cantilevered balcony

A cantilevered balcony is a type of balcony that is supported only at one end, typically by a structural wall or column. The other end of the balcony extends out over open space, suspended in mid-air and supported by beams, joists, or other structural elements. Cantilevered balconies offer a number of benefits, including:

1. Increased space: By extending out over open space, cantilevered balconies increase the usable square footage of a building without taking up space on the ground level. 2. Aesthetics: Cantilevered balconies can add an attractive architectural element to a building and provide a unique visual interest. 3. No pillars or posts: Since cantilevered balconies are supported at only one end, they do not require additional support pillars or posts, which can increase the amount of usable floor space.

It is important to note that the construction of cantilevered balconies requires a high level of engineering and technical expertise to ensure their structural stability and safety. Improper construction or insufficient support can lead to dangerous collapses.

In order to comply with California SB326 and SB721, it is very important that homeowners hire a balcony inspector to ensure their balconies and exterior elevated elements are safe for human use.
