August 26, 2016 - East Setauket, New York - 2 Hurt After Huge College Party Collapses Deck

 


 Michael-Leavitt-160NOTE: I have dozens and dozens of collapse stories that never got archived. The stories repeat themselves over and over again. Are we making progress? I do believe that newer decks are being built much better.  Our issue is that older decks are plentiful and the weight of a good party crowd combined with the aged wood and connections will continue to fill my daily Google Searches for "Deck Collapse". Have your deck inspected TODAY!
