  • LET'S GO OUT ON THE DECK - Building Trust Renovation Blog - South Carolina - Daniel Builders

    BUILDING TRUST BLOG LET'S GO OUT ON THE DECK While your deck is top of mind, it’s a good idea to do a deck safety evaluation. < Back Will Cord 2024-05-25 Warm weather has arrived, and at this time of the year it’s not uncommon to say, “Let’s go out on the deck!” While your deck is top of mind, it’s a good idea to do a deck safety evaluation. After all, May is “National Deck Safety Month”. Here is a checklist provided by the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) regarding what to look for when inspecting your deck. Evaluate flashing - NADRA describes flashing as “a metal or plastic guard that directs water out and away from sensitive areas. It’s often installed where the deck and house come together, keeping moisture and debris from collecting between the house and the deck’s ledger board.” [1] If you notice standing water in this area on your deck, you may need to replace the flashing. Evaluate wood surfaces - Even when a deck is built with composite materials, some aspects of the structure are still built using wood. For example, the ledger board will likely be made of wood. It’s often the culprit of deck failure. [Photo: Waller Before 1.jpg] Also inspect the decking, joists, posts, railing, banisters, and stairs for holes and decay. Holes can indicate an insect problem. There are three easy tests for rot and decay. 1) Can a screwdriver pierce the wood ¼ - ½ inch deep? 2) Does the wood splinter or break off in a clump? Splinters are a good sign that rot hasn’t set in. 3) Are any areas of the wood moist, spongy, or damp? Evaluate the fasteners - [Wooden Board – EnvatoStock.jpg] Evaluate fasteners, nails, and screws for corrosion. Rusty fasteners should be replaced as they can cause the wood to deteriorate. Nails and screws should be flush with the surface. Fasteners should be tight. Evaluate the stairs - Nothing could be a bigger safety hazard than insecure stair treads, risers, stringers, and railings (especially when the deck is high off the ground). [Photo: Waller Loose Handrail.jpg] If the riser area is open, the opening should not be larger than 4 inches. Keep stairways clear to prevent potential tripping hazards. Evaluate potential fire hazards - Be aware of the proximity of heat sources to flammable items. Read through manufacturer guidelines for grills, fire pits, etc. to review best practices for general safety and operating distance. Adjust placement if necessary. Lighting and electrical outlets are also included in this category. Outdoor electrical elements should adhere to code, be in working order, and be childproof. Evaluate outdoor furniture and storage - Ensure furniture, swings, and hammocks are in good working order. Secure grilling and chemical products out of reach of children. Evaluate the surrounding trees - Contact an arborist to prevent accidents due to falling limbs. Have a question about your deck or are you looking to build a new deck?

  • Condo Remodels, Condo Renovations - South Carolina - Daniel Builders

    CONDO REMODELS & RENOVATIONS Condo remodels and condominium renovations offer homeowners the opportunity to refresh and customize their living space to suit their evolving needs and tastes. These projects often involve updating fixtures, appliances, and finishes to enhance functionality and aesthetics while maximizing the property's value. From modernizing kitchens and bathrooms to reconfiguring layouts for better flow, condo renovations and remodels can transform dated spaces into stylish, contemporary retreats tailored to residents' lifestyles. How do you begin a condo remodel? It's quite different than remodeling a house. First, you'll need a contractor with a commercial license. Then, you'll need a structural engineer to advise on building integrity, an architect to draft the plans, and an interior designer familiar with space-saving solutions. Finally, you'll need a trustworthy project manager to manage communication and a build team that's considerate of both you AND your neighbors. Our Guide-Design-Build process includes all this and more. If you don't require design services, our Direct Projects team has you covered. OUR PROCESS Guide: The path to your custom renovation starts with a 10 minute conversation. Afterwards, we meet with you in your home and begin clarifying general project scope. Design: After you sign our Design agreement, the project moves into the Design phase. Architectural drawings, selections from paint color to fixtures, a detailed scope of work, and a Fixed Price are Design phase deliverables. Build: You’ll be introduced to your Project Manager, who will schedule, coordinate, and communicate all aspects of the project until completion. CONDO RENOVATION GALLERY Need condo remodeling ideas?
