The mission of the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA)—Official Sponsor of DeckExpo—is to provide a unified source for the professional development, promotion, growth, and sustenance of the Deck and Railing building industry in North America so that members can exceed the expectations of their customers.  

NADRA's core purpose is to be the voice of the deck & railing industry by promoting national Deck Safety Month®, helping guide code writing and regulations with ICC and sponsoring DeckExpo, the premiere trade event for the deck, dock, and railing industry.

This program will allow Inspectors the opportunity to evaluate a deck using the NADRA Deck Evaluation checklist.  The NADRA Deck Evaluation checklist has been developed specifically for industry professionals as a comprehensive tool to assess the safety issues of a deck properly.
