How to Apply for a Deck Building Permit

Acton deck finished project by Dexksos deck builders in Cambridge MA

Building a deck for your home can come with multiple advantages. One of the issues that many people don’t consider is the potential permits involved with the project.

In most cases, you or your Deck Builders will need to apply for an official permit before they can begin any construction. The primary stages of this application process include:

Submitting a Scaled Drawing of the Deck

The first step in the application process is the development of two sets of scaled drawings regarding construction plans. The drawings will consist of a cross-section of the actual deck and its various dimensions, while the second set of plans should show the position of the deck in terms of property lines.

Completing the Application Permit

You’ll also need to complete the actual application form. Some of the details required with this form include your home address including street name, postal code and municipality, the activity involved (new construction, demolition, or addition), applicant details, and potential schedule involved.

Waiting for Approval

Depending on factors such as the region and complications, a deck-building permit can be delivered in a span of 10 to 20 days. This means that planning is key, and the application should be submitted as soon as possible. We offer permit application services for our deck-building projects, so call us today!
