Love Spending Time Outdoors? Check Your Deck®
During Deck Safety Month® and throughout the year, homeowners can take advantage of resources and tools from the North American Decking and Railing Association to ensure the security and longevity of their decks.
Quakertown, PA (May 1st, 2017) - May is Deck Safety Month®, the perfect time for homeowners to ensure their decks are in top condition for the season ahead. The North American Decking and Railing Association (NADRA) invites consumers to Check Your Deck® using resources such as the 10-Point Consumer Checklist.
"Of the 40 million residential decks in the U.S., it's estimated that half of them are more than 25 years old. 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:
"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."
