Home Living : August 24th 2010
6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 Smart ways » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Archicentre, Australia's largest supplier of housing pre-purchase inspections and design concepts has targeted balcony and deck safety with the release of a new service specifically aimed at balcony and deck safety checks. The release of the new service follows injuries -- and even some fatalities -- caused when balconies and decks have collapsed, with each event leaving a potential trail of expensive legal and medical bills for homeowners and other people involved. Archicentre Queensland state manager Ian Agnew said the safety checks would provide homeowners with a status report on their balcony and recommended actions for maintenance and repair. ''Anyone purchasing a home with a deck or balcony should ask to see the appropriate building permits to find out when the deck was built and if it was built with appropriate permits,'' he said. ''If unsure of the condition of the balcony or deck, purchasers should also request a recent safety report by a qualified and registered person such as an architect or engineer." Mr Agnew said balconies and decks were exposed to weather extremes and needed to be periodically checked for deterioration. ''The introduction of Deck Safe is aimed at providing vendors, homebuyers, homeowners and body corporate organisations with a reasonably priced condition report to minimise potential for injury and expensive legal cases." The Deck Safe report costs $350 and will be backed by the offer of a $15,000 guarantee. Details: archicentre.com.au, 1300 134 513.
