PSA: Building code requirements are the bare minimum allowed when constructing something that people can occupy. While a home inspection does not cite code, we do want to ensure our clients can live safely in their home. The majority of code is to make sure occupants are safe. For Example: I encourage you to take a look at your deck and deck structure. Often as homeowners, we don’t pay close attention to these structures and before you know it, they can fail. If you do happen to catch a deteriorated component make sure, at the bare minimum, its updated to current code. This deck that I inspected hit the trifecta of neglect, failure and improper repair. If you are adventurous I invite you to google, DECK FAILURE, and you will see NEW and OLD decks that have failed. I am always available by phone or email for a consultation if you have any questions.
