Is Your Deck Safe?

The Montgomery County Department of Permitting Services (DPS) extended its free residential deck inspection service into the summer months.

To schedule a free deck inspection in Montgomery County, call 3-1-1 or 240-777-0311.

Residents may request an inspection online by visiting the County’s website. Once the request is received, an inspector will contact the homeowner to schedule the inspection. 

Inspectors advise residents to thoroughly inspect their decks regularly to keep the structure sound and to ensure its longevity. For more information, download the Deck Maintenance Checklist, which is posted as a reference guide on the County’s website.

The free deck inspections are available to all Montgomery County residents - excluding Rockville and Gaithersburg residents who are served by the permitting departments of the City municipalities.
