Why Having a Permit is so Important When Building a Deck
We get this at least once a week. "I spoke to a contractor who can start in 2 weeks and says I don't need a permit."
So why do you need a permit ?
In a nutshell: it’s the law.
All deck projects must be reviewed by your local jurisdiction to ensure they comply with the current International Residential Code (IRC). The IRC sets out minimum regulations for construction projects related to residences, including provisions for building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, energy, and electrical. The goal is to ensure that all construction is safe, built correctly, and up to the current building standards.
