A deck is the perfect place to enjoy the warm weather with friends and loved ones. But an unsafe deck could collapse, causing serious injuries to you and your guests.

The number of deck failures and resulting injuries is increasing at an alarming rate. Between 2000 and 2008, at least 30 deaths were reported due to deck collapses. More than 75 percent of people on a deck when it collapses are injured or killed. With 40 million decks in the United States that are more than 20 years old, it's important for homeowners to check their decks.

NADRA (North American Deck and Railing Association) is dedicated to increasing public awareness of the necessity for regular inspection and maintenance of existing decks and proper installation of new decks.
