According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, only about 40% of the 45 million existing decks are completely safe. So what does this mean for you and your Ellicott City home? Maybe it’s time to consider having your deck inspected by the professionals at Freedom Fence and Home, especially with winter right around the corner.

Winter is Coming!
In the words of Ned Stark, “Winter is Coming.” For fans of the HBO hit-series Game of Thrones, you know this is more than just a warning. It’s a reminder: a reminder to prepare for what’s ahead. In Ned Stark’s case, he was preparing for war…and ice zombies. In your case, you just need to prepare for the impending winter weather.
According to climate experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, we are in for another harsh winter here in Ellicott City, Maryland. The primary culprit: the polar vortex.
“The polar vortex is a large pocket of very cold air, typically the coldest air in the Northern Hemisphere, which sits over the polar region,” explained Alex Sosnowski, AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist. “Occasionally, this pocket of very cold air can get dislodged farther south than normal, leading to cold outbreaks in Canada and the U.S.”
“Temperatures will plunge to 20 degrees below average in parts of the South,” added Paul Pastelok, AccuWeather.com Long Range Expert.
