Deck inspectionDeck

Decks are a great feature to the home, however with many decks, age, wear, substandard workmanship and antiquated building practices can pose potential concerns. We will evaluate the visible condition of the framing, supports posts, ledger attachment and flashing. We will also report on the condition of any railing and potential safety concerns. There are may styles, designs and materials which have various maintenance requirements and concerns. Wood decks can show premature wear from power washing and some composite decks have been implicated in recalls. Higher decks can pose safety concerns due to inadequate posts, ledger attachments and rotted components. We have extensive experience building decks and will educate you about maintenance and areas that may need to be improved for additional safety and to improve the remaining life of the deck.
