Free Deck Inspections
To help raise awareness of building safety, Montgomery County’s Department of Permitting Services (DPS) is celebrating Building Safety Month by offering free deck maintenance inspections for single-family detached homes, townhouses and duplex dwellings.
The inspections are available to all Montgomery County residents — excluding those in the City of Rockville and the City of Gaithersburg — and include a checklist for homeowners to help them maintain a safe and sound structure.
Residents interested in scheduling a deck inspection should contact Montgomery County during the month of May by calling 3-1-1 or by faxing at 240-777-6258. Homeowners will be contacted before the inspection is performed. All requests will be honored as the inspectors’ workloads permit.
