Attention: Borough of West Wildwood Property Owner
In light of the recent problems with older decks, the Borough of West Wildwood is recommending that every property owner check their exterior deck for damage, excessive wear and other problems. Please be advised that prolonged exposure to severe weather combined with the moisture levels and salt air in the coastal environment can cause serious damage to exterior decks, structural supports and attachments to the main structure. Proper routine maintenance of these exterior decks, porches and balconies should prevent structural problems and possible failures.
Care should be taken to ensure that the supporting structural components are intact and stable as well as the connections to the framing and the main structure. These connections should be tight and mechanical connectors should be free of corrosion. Please note that secure connections to supports and the main structure should prevent separation from the structure and potential failure. Please check all aspects of these exterior structures including, but not limited to: Columns and supports; connections to structural supports and the main structure; beams and girders, joists and ledgers; any existing bolts and/or joist hangers; stairs and handrails; and guardrails for any raised portion of the deck.
In the event that the deck is not stable or shows signs of instability, a review should be obtained from a registered architect or licensed engineer to obtain recommendations for repairs to render the structure safe. The City of Wildwood’s construction office will assist you with properly following procedures regarding an unsafe structure and the application process for obtaining construction permits for repair.
Please keep in mind that it is the responsibility of every property and building owner to ensure that their structure is maintained in a safe condition free of hazards.
Thank you for your cooperation and attention to this important life safety matter.
