Balcony, Deck, and Pier Safety

Does your property have balconies? Decks? Piers?  When is the last time they were inspected, to be sure they are safe for use?

When it comes to balconies, decks and piers, structural failure or collapse can lead to serious injuries, including fatalities. The 3 primary causes of such failures are:
  • Rotted railings, deck boards, and/or stairs
  • Main connecting board (ledger board) not being properly attached
  • Hardware fasteners that are rusted or corroded
