Time always seems to be running out, doesn't it? There's no need to worry. Just drop by Patch for weekly reminders of important looming dates and deadlines.
Here’s an important one to keep in mind this week:
Deck and Porch Inspections
The city’s Department of Buildings will inspect decks and porches for safety and not issue violations if dangerous conditions are found until Aug. 1.
If repairs are necessary and conditions do not pose an immediate safety hazard, the city will allow property owners time to correct any conditions on their homes without issuing penalties.
Homeowners can request a free inspection to ensure that they are structurally safe and in compliance with city regulations.
The DOB will search for cracking, rotting, failed connections and other conditions that could potentially be dangerous.
The No-Penalty Deck and Porch Inspection program was first launched in 2010. For more information, visit the agency's website.
