Tips For Homeowners

Deck Safety At Home And Your Vacation Rental Property


A deck is one of the top amenities for your home or at vacation properties; in both cold and warm-weather destinations.

Sadly, poorly built and unmaintained decks can cause unnecessary injuries and even death. Without proper installation and regular inspection, your outdoor living area can turn into a potential disaster. Why it is important hire a company like ours. We have the credentials, experience and will always explain products we use. We can show you samples of the materials we use.

When building a deck, there is more to consider than price and aesthetics. Beyond the installation and maintenance, decks can also sag or collapse simply because of age, corroded materials or exceeding capacity. Your deck inspection should provide information as to the weight limits for your personal deck, along with general things to keep an eye on. If your home or vacation home is in a location with a harsh winter, snow and ice can even cause distress to certain areas of your deck.

There are five warning signs for a dangerous deck:

  • Loose connections (e.g. a wobbly railing)
  • Missing connections (e.g. the deck is just nailed to the side of the house)
  • Corrosion
  • Rot
  • Cracks

With proper deck construction and regular inspections and maintenance, you can help ensure the safety of your family and your guests for years to come. If you would like to schedule an appointment for us to do an inspection just call!
