Is Your Deck Safe?

Home safety. What comes to mind when you think about that? My guess is moldy basements, fire extinguishers and alarms, and electrical outlets? Well, while those are all important aspects of home safety, what about your deck?

Just like your roof, your deck should be annually maintained and inspected. Yet, according to the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA), only half of the existing 40 million decks are up to code, and roughly 20 million decks are more than 20 years old and could be unsafe.

Is your deck code compliant?

To find out, check out the NADRA.org “Consumer Checklist.”

If, after reviewing the above checklist and thoroughly inspecting your deck, you have decided that your deck needs work or that you need a completely new deck then give Freedom Fence and Home a call!
