Porches, Balconies, Decks and Carports

Your A-Pro inspector visually examines porches, balconies, decks and carports, understanding that these additions are too often prone to improper installation methods. Our goal is to help prevent costly repairs and accidents caused by potentially unsafe features. These areas are inspected at the visible attachments and for safety issues related to balusters, spindles, rails and stairs.
