A deck is the perfect place to enjoy the warm weather while staying at home. But every year those special times are spoiled with the collapse of unsafe decks resulting in serious injuries and at times, fatalities.

The number of deck failures is increasing at an alarming rate. More than 75 percent of people who are on a deck when it collapses are injured or killed. Forty million decks in the United States are over 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.
