Ensuring Deck Safety: The Importance of Deck Inspections
At Almar Building, we take the safety and quality of your deck seriously. We rely on the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) ‘s Deck Evaluation Checklist to spot any potential issues with your existing deck. NADRA raises awareness regarding regular deck inspections, maintenance, and proper installation of new decks.
NADRA’s website shows deck failures and injuries have risen- which is concerning. With around 40 million decks in the United States that are over 20 years old, homeowners must prioritize deck inspections, especially for those older structures. If your deck is on the older side, it’s a good idea to inspect it thoroughly. Now, let us help you choose a reliable remodeling professional…
How to Choose a Deck Remodeler:
- When considering a deck builder, ask for experience, licensing, insurance coverage, and professional references. Price isn’t the only thing you should consider when hiring a deck builder.
- Talk to friends and family, and contact state and local licensing authorities and trade associations like NADRA or NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) for recommendations.
- Meet up with potential deck builders and dig into their expertise. Ask them to see their portfolio and examples of decking and railing materials they prefer. A good builder takes pride in their work and is excited about building a solid relationship.
