Causes of Porch Collapses

Property owners and managers are responsible for ensuring that their porches and balconies are properly built and maintained so that they are not in danger of collapse. Some of the common causes of porch collapses include:

  • Rotting or old wood
  • Failure to follow building codes
  • Rusted fastening materials such as nails, screws, and bolts
  • Deterioration of the foundation
  • Overloaded or overpopulated porches

If a careless property owner has failed to repair or replace a dangerous porch, he or she can be held legally responsible for any subsequent accidents.
