A key element to enjoying your deck for years to come is making sure it is safe for your family, friends, and special family events such as birthday parties, graduations and weddings. In the interest of deck safety, homeowners should inspect their decks frequently and consider a professional deck inspection at least yearly.

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. 

NADRA Recommends Deck Evaluations/Inspections and Maintenance

Support NADRA's 2016 DSM Campaign

“NADRA provides industry professionals with a Deck Evaluation Form that is available HERE.  We recommend ASHI-certified home inspectors or a knowledgeable deck builder for inspections of older decks. Our NADRA member deck builders are required to adhere to a code of ethics and comply with state licensing and insurance requirements. This brings peace of mind to homeowners using our NADRA members.”
