“Check Your Deck” campaign by NADRA and end of season outdoor living tips

May is the North American Decking and Railing Association (NADRA) Deck Safety Month, but it is a good idea to check your deck at the end of the summer season too.  Before the rain comes, it is smart to inspect for any rot, stain issues or see if there are any problems with your framing or railings.  Catching issues now will ensure you can enjoy your deck for the rest of the summer and avoid any surprises at the beginning of the 2015 patio season.

You also have another month of easy weather and longer days to complete any necessary upgrades.

Find out more about the NADRA Deck Safety campaign here:  http://www.nadra.org/consumers/deck_safety_month.html and they have some news videos about the risks of poorly maintained decks or projects that weren’t completed to current code.  We also recommend that you check out their deck safety video below:

If your deck checks out, many Patio Furniture and BBQ suppliers begin to discount remaining stock this week.   The best sales will come in after labor day weekend, but you can find deals and better selection if you start looking now.  Here’s to outdoor living.
