By doing a yearly inspection we can ensure that the quality of our work stands the test of time. Year after year you hear in the news of some deck collapsing. This continues to be a problem as years go by. As code requirements change, older deck are grand fathered in. We still see decks being built without the appropriate fasteners or flashing. Something as simple as not flashing the ledger connection to your home can cause serious problems over time. Water seepage between the ledger and Home leads to rot. If combined with improper ledger connection this is a problem and it’s not a mater of if there will be a problem, it’s when.

As Reported by NADRA:
“The number of deck failures and resulting injuries has been increasing at an alarming rate. Between 2000 and 2006, there have been at least 30 deaths reported as a direct result of deck collapses and more than 75 percent of people on a deck when it collapses are injured or killed, illuminating just how important it is for homeowners to check their deck. There are 40 million decks in the U.S. that are over 20 years old. At a conservative 1 percent that means 40,000 decks are currently in need of repair or replacement. Taking that estimate to 10 percent brings the total number of unsafe decks to 4 million. “
“Between August 2004 and December 2005, the U.S. news media reported 225 injuries and one fatality from deck collapses caused by ledger connection failures. Many more deck failures -- with and without injuries -- went unreported in the media. “
