Deck Safety and Precautions in Georgia

Deck Builder America has a team of experts who are well-versed in deck safety and precautions which need to be followed to make sure that anyone who enjoys time on your new home extension isn't going to get hurt. During our deck inspection, we will make sure that the ledger board which attaches your deck to your home is strong and isn't showing any signs of decay or rot. We will also be sure that floor joists are properly spaced and attached securely to beams so that your structure remains stable.

With deck safety tt's also important to have guard rails on all sides and along any raised areas, such as balconies. All decks which are 30" above the ground will need to have railing in place. These rails will need to be about waist high and should be securely in place. We will inspect these rails for any kind of moisture, insect, or weather damage. When it comes to your deck stairs, they should all be equally spaced apart in height. The minimum tread width or depth for each stair is 10". Handrails should be a minimum of 34" high and no higher than 38".
