It’s crucial for homeowners to verify the integrity of their deck to ensure user safety as well as help extend the deck’s life-span, improve appearance, and increase livability,” says Michael Beaudry, executive vice president of NADRA. “We’re proud to offer an array of tools to help consumers check their decks as well as connect with building professionals with the know-how to identify and remedy potential problems.”
Consumers can visit www.NADRA.org to take advantage of resources to Check Your Deck, including:

10-Point Checklist: Homeowners can download the 10-Point Deck Safety Consumer Checklist, a step-by-step guide to visually inspecting the deck for safety concerns such as corroding fasteners, decaying materials, loose railings, inadequate lighting, and more. Though not a replacement for a professional deck inspection, the checklist is a helpful tool to assist homeowners.

Find an Inspector: NADRA and the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) offer building professionals the NADRA Deck Inspection Certification Course, which certifies the recipient has undergone training specific to conducting proper, thorough deck inspections. Consumers can search for a certified inspector in their area by browsing the Inspectors Directory at www.NADRA.org.

Find a Builder: NADRA deck builders adhere to a strict code of ethics and are required to submit proof of licensing and insurance as required by their state. Homeowners can search for qualified deck builders atwww.NADRA.org.

Learn More: Consumers can watch videos and read more about deck safety on NADRA’s consumer Deck Safety page and on the NADRA blog.

“We encourage homeowners to reach out to ASHI-certified home inspectors and NADRA-member deck builders to conduct an inspection of their older deck,” says Beaudry. “NADRA members follow a code of ethics and comply with state licensing and insurance requirements, providing peace of mind.”
