Archadeck Outdoor Living Promotes BE SAFER Campaign in Support of Deck Safety Awareness Month

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) May 02, 2014 - Archadeck Outdoor Living, a company recognized as North America's largest deck and porch builder recently announced their support of Deck Safety Month, an awareness effort established in 2006 by NADRA, the North American Deck and Railing Association.

Archadeck, established in 1980, has built more than 100,000 outdoor living projects across the country with deck design and building one of the company's most popular project categories. "As the outdoor living trend continues to rise, so has the importance of deck safety," explained Rob Haislip, VP of Operations for Archadeck Outdoor Living. "With over 40 million decks in the United States twenty years or older and deck collapse accidents on the rise, we felt it was important to not only support the NADRA Deck Safety campaign, but establish our own deck safety initiative we've called BE SAFER," said Mr. Haislip.

The BE SAFER campaign promotes the importance of conducting a yearly deck safety inspection. The acronym ties into each area that should be examined and evaluated as part of a thorough deck safety inspection. The 7-step BE SAFER deck safety evaluation includes inspecting:

  • Boards
  • Every Connection
  • Structure
  • Attachment
  • Foundation and Footings
  • Exits
  • Rails

Archadeck Outdoor Living prides itself on providing quality and craftsmanship with decks built 40-60% safer than local building codes require. Safety is the company's number one priority and in addition to a detailed explanation on the BE SAFER deck safety checklist, additional safety tips and suggestions can be found on the company's website at
