Archadeck Outdoor Living Launches 2017 BE SAFER Deck Safety Awareness Campaign

Archadeck Outdoor Living, North America's leading designer and builder of outdoor living spaces and structures, kicked off their 2017 BE SAFER Deck Safety Awareness campaign, an annual campaign that runs through the end of May to help educate consumers on the importance of deck safety

RICHMOND, VA --(Marketwired - May 09, 2017) - Archadeck Outdoor Living, a company recognized as North America's largest deck and porch builder, launched its annual BE SAFER deck safety campaign to help educate consumers on the importance of deck safety.

The campaign, which runs through the end of May promotes their BE SAFER comprehensive guide to deck safety.

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 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

"Every year we hear of a tragic deck collapse, which again reminds us of the importance of this campaign," stated Jody Wetherill, Brand Marketing for Archadeck. "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. Regardless who built or who is going to build an outdoor structure, it's important that it be structurally sound and safe."

Archadeck Outdoor Living prides itself on providing quality and craftsmanship with decks built 40-60% safer than local building codes require. In addition to the deck safety tip sheet, a video walking through each safety point check can be found on the company's website at
