Miles Bradley Building is participating in deck safety awareness all throughout the month of May in Michigan. With all the storms that have been rolling through, you never know if you deck has sustained any damage from falling debris or regular wear and tear. Letting your old wooden unsealed deck rot doesn’t make your time outside enjoyable or safe.
This point especially rings true for all the DIYers out there who may have missed a step or safety code when building their deck. Getting a professional deck inspection will not only give you peace of mind but will ensure that your investment will pay off in the long run. We encourage everyone to get their old deck regularly inspected by a licensed professional to ensure that they are safe and up to code.
Over the years, code requirements for decks have changed. Older decks may not be built to adhere today’s code requirements and can cause a safety hazard. One example of an overlooked Some older decks were not built using the correct deck tension hardware which can cause ledger failures.
Code requirements were established to protect the consumer and any future buyers of the consumer’s. Repairing an old wooden deck can be costly, and in some cases replacing a deck may be the only option. That’s why getting an inspection can help you catch any problems before they start.
As a supporter of NADRA or the North America Deck and Railing Association, we are highly qualified deck builders that can provide a deck inspection for you. Miles Bradley has the training, expertise, and special knowledge to provide deck inspections and repair your damaged deck. We can help repair and replace your old deck with new composite deck materials that can stand the test of time. All decks that we construct are up to code and will pass any inspection with flying colors.

The recent Michigan snow fall has stirred up concerns for new deck owners on how to properly maintain their deck during the winter months. We often get questions about removing the snow on your deck in the winter. As your trusted deck building company, we are happy to address any concerns that you may have about maintaining your deck in the winter.
Should I remove the snow from my deck?
You do not have to remove the snow from the deck. We only recommend that you clear a path if the deck is connected to your house to avoid accidents.
Will my deck collapse if I don’t remove the snow from it ?
Your deck will not collapse from the added weight from the snow. Miles Bradley builds high quality low maintenance decks that are built to withstand the Michigan winter. When you mix Trex decking with our great workmanship, you get a strong deck that can handle the weight from people , furniture, or snow.
Will I mess up the deck by shoveling it ?
If you plan to shovel the snow off of your deck, we recommend that you use a rubber shovel. Metal shovels can possibly scratch up your deck. When shoveling, we also recommend that you use one big stroke and run the shovel down the length of the boards.
What products are recommended to remove snow and ice?
To remove snow and ice, we recommend that you use rock salt or calcium chloride.
Thanks for being a valued customer of Miles Bradley. We look forward to another great year with you.
