Deck Safety Month

As families from all over the world are spending more time together, they will be looking to get outdoors and make use of their space.
With more than 60 million decks in the U.S. (50m residential and 10m commercial), it is estimated that 30 million decks are past their useful life and need to be replaced or repaired. It is crucial for homeowners to have their decks inspected to verify the integrity of their deck to ensure user safety as well as help extend the deck’s lifespan, improve appearance, and increase livability.

Deck Safety Month®, is the perfect time for homeowners to ensure their decks are in top condition for the season ahead. As you are spending more time at home with your loved ones, The North American Decking and Railing Association (NADRA) invites consumers to Check Your Deck® using resources such as the 10-Point Consumer Checklist. 10-Point Checklist: Homeowners can download the 10-Point Deck Safety Consumer Checklist, a step-by-step guide to visually inspecting the deck for safety concerns such as corroding fasteners, decaying materials, and loose railings, inadequate lighting, and more. Though not a replacement for a professional deck inspection, the checklist is a helpful tool to assist homeowners.
