WHAT CAUSED YOUR PORCH COLLAPSE ACCIDENT?
Without proper maintenance, older buildings are particularly susceptible to structural mishaps like porch collapses, especially when any of the following is involved:
- Rotting wood
- Rusted screws, nails, and fasteners
- Porches that weren’t constructed according to building code
- Deterioration of the structure’s foundation
When porches become overburdened for one of the following reasons, even porches and decking on newer buildings may collapse:
- Embedded pool or hot tub
- Extremely heavy appliances, including air conditioner compressors
- Overabundant deck furniture
Texas property owners are responsible for both the maintenance and safety of their premises; they are expected to ensure structures like porches do not become dangerously overburdened. Should any injury result from a property owner’s negligence, he or she may be held financially liable for associated damages.
