Deck Collapses in the U.S. Emphasize Need for Solidly Built Decks
A recent rash in deck collapses in the U.S. has lead to increased attention for deck safety. When you call on Garden Structures & Landscape Construction Inc., the top provider of wood deck designs in Caledon and the surrounding regions, we provide beautifully designed and solidly built decks that stand up to the wild weather Southern Ontario can have.
One of the deck collapses took place in Florida and saw four people injured, including two children and an elderly woman, when the deck they were standing on collapsed. The deck was added to the house’s original deck, which was built back in the 1970s; in fact, the whole house has been deemed unsafe to live in following the deck collapse.
It’s also worth noting that the house was built on a beach, which is not the best location for an elevated deck. But regardless of where you decide to build your deck, even it if is good, solid Southern Ontario soil, you must make sure that your deck is solidly built and will pass inspection. If there is a collapse, friends and family members will be injured, and you, as the homeowner, will be held responsible.
With its beautiful rural setting, Caledon is the ideal location to enjoy Southern Ontario’s far-too-short summers outdoors, and the best place to do this is on a deck.
