As part of a full pre-purchase building inspection, Action property Inspections includes a pergola, decking and/or verandah inspection (as part of the house exterior inspection).   A deck inspection is very important as decay damage, inadequate bracing, and loose boards all compromise deck safety.  To be aware of any potential problems, it is therefore vital to incorporate a comprehensive analysis of deck, verandah, and pergola structures.
