Yep, it’s a real thing… ‘Deck Safety Month’ begins in May.

Sponsored by NADRA (North American Deck and Rail Association), ‘Deck Safety Month’ reminds homeowners to check-your-deck this spring.

In our post highlighting safety last year, we wrote:

As decks across the U.S. have aged, proper maintenance and periodic inspections have sometimes been neglected or completely ignored. When those decks are packed-with-people during parties, prom photo-shoots or graduation events, a collapse can occur and cause serious injuries.

Or maybe the deck wasn’t built properly the first time.

A simple, seven-point inspection plan will help you spot trouble.  Use Archadeck’s acronym – BE SAFER (Boards, Every Connection, Structure, Attachment,Footings, Exists, Rails) for a DIY deck-check.

To read the full article, just go here: “How To Check Your Deck For Safety”.

This year, however, we’ve made things super-easy.  Watch Archadeck’s LIVE deck safety inspection right here to learn how to DIY.
