If you plan on doing a little dining and dancing on your deck this summer, please make sure the support beams ACTUALLY TOUCH THE GROUND. These floaters are sure to wreck a good time if not fixed soon! It seems so obvious, but things like this get overlooked all the time - and if you're buying a home, major safety hazards should be addressed before you close. Let us help you make informed decisions that will help keep your family safe and protect your investment. The inspection report you receive will serve as a road map to your home, helping to identify the major components and where they are located, as well as pointing out areas of concern. Inspections are critically important and well worth it!
Wooden decks and stairs can be downright treacherous in the summer (think bare feet and/or thin sandals), especially when nails become exposed. Channel your inner MC Hammer and pound those nails back in to save you and your steppers from trips, cuts, and worse. Take a walk around your deck and wooden stairs and check out all of the nails (and look for splintered wood too!) to keep those summer nights easy like Sunday morning.
