2017 Deck Inspections (Omaha Home Inspection)

Post from 2017 showing a very loose railing that was not properly blocked in at the guard posts beneath

Why was the deck railing so loose? Look close and you’ll see that the nails are pulled entirely out of the ends of the joists where the rim joist was attached. The guard posts are bolted onto the rim joist…that is pretty much ready to fall off. Think about leaning against that when you’re a full story off the ground!
