While your deck was inspected during your WIN Full Home Inspection, a routine Deck Inspection can address seasonal risks. In the summer, increased deck usage puts extra wear, tear and strain on your deck, decreasing its life more quickly and increasing the likelihood of things breaking. In the winter, moisture and weather issues can threaten the deck’s structural integrity and potentially cause wood rot and mold. With a standalone Deck Inspection, or a Deck Inspection as part of your annual Healthy Home Check, you can ensure your deck remains safe to use all year long.
It is recommended to have your deck inspected annually to ensure its safety and structural integrity. More frequent inspections may be needed after a severe weather event.
A Deck Inspection can detect problems like wood decay, rot, insect damage, loose connections, or unstable railings and stairs, helping you address them promptly.
While you can and should visually inspect your deck often for damage, a professional Deck Inspection offers a thorough assessment, ensuring your deck is safe and meets current safety standards.
Conducting a Deck Inspection before listing can enhance your home's marketability and provide potential buyers with confidence in the deck's condition.
The responsibility for the cost of a Deck Inspection may vary. In some cases, sellers may choose to include it as part of their pre-listing preparations; however, in most cases, it is part of the buyer’s due diligence process.
If issues are found, as the seller, you can decide to repair them before listing, offer a credit to cover repairs or disclose the issues to potential buyers, allowing them to make informed decisions.
