RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2016) - Archadeck Outdoor Living, a company recognized as North America's largest deck and porch builder, recently announced the availability of a new deck safety tip sheet promoting deck safety tips and the brand's BE SAFER acronym.

Established in 1980, Archadeck has built more than 100,000 outdoor living projects across the country with deck design and building being one of the company's most popular project categories. "As you can imagine, we've seen every type of decking structure in every state and condition," said Mike Reeder, Vice President and Brand Leader of Archadeck Outdoor Living. "We developed the BE SAFER acronym as a way to educate consumers on deck safety and to help them evaluate their own structure."

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

"The deck safety tip sheet explains each of the 7 steps and is free to download on our national website making it accessible to anyone who might find it helpful or have questions," stated Jody Wetherill, Brand Marketing Manager for Archadeck.
