Deck Safety featured on Good Morning America
In April 2007 Simpson Strong-Tie made an appearance on Good Morning America. The segment focused on the prevalence of deck failure and featured the five warning signs of an unsafe deck. It concluded with a live demonstration of a simulated deck failure. We hope this video helps bring awareness to the importance to building a safe, strong deck.
Inspect Your Deck Once a Year
Deck collapse is a serious problem, but one that's preventable. Simpson Strong-Tie teamed up with the Home Safety Council to educate families about the importance of deck safety and inspecting your deck once a year. Meri-K Appy, president of the Home Safety Council, walks you through the five warning signs of an unsafe deck and shows you what a safe deck should look like. The Home Safety Council is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing injuries in and around the home.
