What to Expect During a Deck Inspection

A deck inspection is an important step in the process of building or replacing a deck. It ensures that the deck meets safety standards and is built to code.  

During a deck inspection, an inspector inspects the

  • Footing  
  • Framing 
  • Flashing details  
  • Base sizes  
  • Soil under the deck  
  • Structural supports  
  • The ledger board  
  • Joists  
  • Beams  
  • Guardrails  
  • Fasteners  
  • Stairs  

Your inspector carefully examines each component carefully to determine the overall condition of the deck. They are especially searching for issues such as wood rot, wood decay, insect damage, structural defects, and corroded fasteners. These problems can be major safety concerns and need to be identified and addressed in order to ensure your safety or the safety of your building’s occupants.

How Often Should I Schedule a Deck Inspection?

Regular deck inspections are essential for ensuring the safety of your deck and those who use it. Depending on the age and condition of your deck, as well as any changes or additions that have been made to it, experts recommend having your deck inspected at least once a year. This can help identify any potential issues before they become serious problems and give you peace of mind knowing your deck is safe for everyone to enjoy.  

If a deck is found to have certain structural deficiencies, more frequent inspections may be required – always consult with an expert before making any decisions about how often you should inspect your deck. Call the Orange County desk inspectors at VCI Builds to learn more!
