New York Residential Building Accident Prevention: New Yorkers can request a free inspection of their deck and porch without the threat of receiving a violation

deck%20inspection.pngIf porches and decks are not maintained properly the weather changes and the exposure to elements can put them at risk of collapse and proprety owners can be held responsible for personal injury that may occur in the event of an accident . For this reason the NYC Building department just launched its annual no-penalty deck and porch inspection program.

New Yorkers who own a property can call 311 during the entire month of July to ask for a free inspection. Inspectors will make sure that deck and porches are structurally sound and will look for cracks, rotting, failed connections or any other signs that could lead to a collapse.
