Balconies, Decks Balustrades Checklist Mobile App

The Balconies, Decks Balustrades Checklist mobile app is for any building that has a balcony, deck or balustrading. Home and property owners should regularly check and maintain their balcony, deck and balustrades. If not properly built and maintained they have the potential to be a safety and danger issue. GoCanvas rolls up your charges for the month and charges you only once.
