How is your deck treating you?
Now that summer is over, and you have enjoyed the pleasures of outdoor entertainment on your deck, it is a good time to check your deck before the hard winter weather takes over.
Over the last ten years there has been over 800 reported injuries and 20 deaths as a result of deck collapse. Dry rot and improper structural support are the main causes for deck failure in our part of the country.
Deck inspections are a part of our structural home inspection, and as a homeowner, should be part of your ongoing home maintenance. If you have a concern about your deck, please give me a call and allow me to help evaluate the quality of your deck.
I also have available a complete maintenance schedule for both Fall and Spring for the entire home. Give me a call and I would be glad to forward this guideline for your home maintenance.
