Full Deck Inspection

PCA Inspections has been trained and certified as Deck Inspectors by the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA).  Our 70-Point Inspection fully evaluates the design and condition of the deck for safety and structural integrity.

Over 6,000 injures are reported each year from deck failures and deck hazards.  Decks are often built by unskilled home owners or contractors with limited training or experience in deck building and structural design.  Deck building requirements have changed and most home owners don’t realize their deck can be at risk of failure.
