Porches & Decks
A porch and deck are important exterior structures of a home that deserve care. Neglecting structure can limit the years of enjoyment also create a safety hazard.
For existing porches and decks, winter months can definitely wreak havoc on the structure. Strong winds and heavy snow piles can warp wood, create dangerous pressure points and ruin stains or other decorative features.
ALL IMAGES USED ARE FROM OUR PREVIOUS INSPECTIONS
For pre-existing decks and porches, here’s what our professional inspector will look out for:
• Is the masonry cracking or flaking?
• Is there wood-earth contact, rotted wood or chipping paint?
• Has the structure separated from the house or has the structure settled?
A thorough inspection of your newly built porch or deck is also important. Although it is uncommon for a new build to have imperfections, it can happen. A professional inspection will put worries at ease. After the inspection, you’ll know for sure that the structure is sound.
