May is Deck Safety Month, created by the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) to inform homeowners of the dangers decks can pose when not properly maintained.

NADRA’s deck safety video highlights the importance of deck inspections, along with some images common deck hazards – for example, the rotting that can happen in older decks under the surface. The video is from 2012, but all of the issues it raises are still relevant today:

If you know your deck is safe, you’ll be able to fully enjoy your backyard and deck with family and friends! As summer gets into swing this year, don’t forget to Check Your Deck®.
