May is Michigan Deck Safety Month

Michigan Deck Inspection Checklist

Getting your deck’s ledger, framing, and hardware checked can help you avoid any future pains

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.
