  • When do I do a safety inspection of my deck?
  • What do I look for during a safety inspection of my deck?

These 2 questions are very important for every home owner that has a deck. And to answer these questions, I will take one at a time.

#1 When do I do a safety inspection of my deck?

It is recommended that a major inspection of your deck take place at least once per year by not only by the home owner but also have a professional deck installation company come out and walk through your deck inspection with you. And to get ready for the upcoming good weather and out door entertainment, Now is the best time to have that safety inspection.

#2 What do I look for during a safety inspection of my deck?

There are a lot of thing to look for when inspecting a deck, and where a lot of home owners fall short, is on the supporting structure, stair stringers, and hand rails and post. We all look at the deck boards every time we go out onto our deck, but seldom think about looking at what holds them up. Sort of like “out of sight, out of mind”. Until it is to late and somebody gets hurt.
