What to Consider When Determining Whether You Need a Permit for Your Deck Installation

First, it’s important to note that different states and areas will have different permit guidelines. But generally, you will need a permit when you’re building a deck that will be attached to your house or other structures on your property. You may also need one if you’re building a standalone deck that is a certain height off the ground. Typically, decks built at ground level—or those built lower than a certain height—may not need a permit. In any case, it’s important to confirm whether or not you need a certain permit before you begin your deck-building project. The good news is, when you work with a team of experts like Tundraland, you’ll have help with that process.
