deck safety evaluations

There are many intricacies when it comes to not only having a deck that’s structurally sound but one that’s up to code, too. 

Decks may be their own separated structures or adjacent to the home. They come in many different heights, shapes and sizes, and with a variety of features—like materials, handrails, staircases, and more. 

Most decks are still made with at least some real wood. Wood features need routine maintenance and are bound to be impacted by moisture, sun, chemicals, and more. 

We’ve come a long way in the deck building process, and most decks today are strong and structurally sound. However, no matter the deck, each one needs to be cleaned, maintained, and preserved on a regular basis. 

 

Meet The Standard Of Safety With Deck Evaluations

Deck safety inspectors will look at a variety of features and points on a deck to evaluate its safety and provide recommendations or sometimes requirements for improvement. 

Some of the major spots examined in a deck safety inspection are beams and joists, footings, posts, columns, supports, landings, stairs, where the deck connects to the home, boards, railings, handrails, brackets and other metal hardware, and electrical elements. 

It’s crucial to have your deck evaluated by a professional inspector that is trained and certified to make sure your deck meets all standards set by the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA). 

And following your deck inspection, it’s crucial to have on hand a trusted source for deck cleaning, repair, and building. Keep in mind that it comes down to more than just price—deck construction shouldn’t be left to just anyone.
