Home Safety Inspections are a MUST

I recently spoke to a friend of mine who was excited about a new deck he was having added to his home. Less than a month later, he was calling me to tell me that the deck had collapsed. Luckily, nobody was on the deck when this happened, however, this event highlighted the necessity for home safety inspections.
