Frequently Asked Questions for Deck Inspection
When decks are not constructed properly, they may be prone to collapse or railing failure. Even with a well-constructed deck, it is a good idea to have it inspected to ensure that weather, structure shifting, and regular wear-and-tear have not compromised the integrity of the deck.
Decks should be inspected annually. NADRA reccommends deck inspections every May as people begin to spend more time outdoors. However, be sure to schedule an inspection after a harsh winter or anytime you notice something concerning about your deck and its functionability.
If your deck fails an inspection, the inspector will give you a notice of the issues with your deck and the corrections needed. Since Excel is a decking company, we can provide a quote for the deck repairs and/or reconstruction you need.
