Is your deck safe? As NADRA states, “The evaluation/ inspection of residential decks require special knowledge, expertise and experience because of the possibility of the gradual deterioration of structural materials from water, climate factors, and corrosion of structural fasteners and connectors.  In addition to structural materials, numerous deck elements such as guardrails, handrails, lighting, stairs, and landings may not meet current safety standards as the building codes are updated on a recurring basis, typically three years.   A professional inspector should thoroughly examine your deck for occupant safety to ensure the deck is safe for future use.”

Consumers are invited to download NADRA’s DIY checklist to perform a preliminary inspection. This checklist should not be used as to determine if your deck is safe, an inspector performs a very detailed inspection on every part of your deck!

Download the consumer checklist here HO Checklist

California now requires inspections of Exterior Elevated Elements-decks and balconies for dwelling’s with 3 or more units with decks.  READ THE BALCONY BILL SB 721 HERE     

Many general contractors have jumped on the bandwagon and have created “deck inspection companies” that are designed to feed their contracting business with work. Many offer “free” inspections or rebate back the fee if you give them the repair contract. We believe this is unethical and misleading.

DeckExpert.com advises  that you retain an expert that only does inspections. Once you have an inspection report and need work, hire a project manager to develop repair specifications, put the work out to bid and oversee the repairs. Having someone on your side is preferable to being at the mercy of contractors peddling fear…
