Deck Safety & Maintenance
Deck Flashing

There is no greater time to inspect your deck prior to having all your friends and family over for outdoor fun. We thought it would be beneficial to our homeowners to have Rick Godsey, Currituck County Building Inspector, create a simple deck video series  that would help you recognize some potential hazards and maintenance issues that may need addressed.

The fourth video in the series is Deck Flashing.
