Applying for a Deck-building Permit

Permits are a deck-building requirement in most regions that many homeowners aren’t aware of. These constructions are governed by regulatory bodies such as the local building authority and Homeowners Associations (HOAs).

Most professional Deck Builders will handle this requirement on your behalf. The primary stages of this process include:

Deck Design

This stage doesn’t only deal with aesthetic aspects such as shape and additional features but also includes the specific dimensions that will be involved with the construction. This includes the height of the deck and railing, as well as the spacing between stairs to name a few.


Once you have settled on a design, the next stage involves filling out the application form and submitting the documents with a scaled drawing of your deck. You will also need to pay a certain fee for the application. The price will differ from region to region but is generally set at an affordable scale. This process can also be done online in most cases.


The final stage lies with the building authority as they have to approve the application before you can start construction. This can take a few days to a few weeks to happen depending on the region. Once you receive your permit you should make a point of sticking it in a visible area for inspectors. We offer reliable decking solutions at affordable rates, so call us today!
