Decks

Information on adding or replacing a deck.


Inspections

Most deck projects require that erosion control measures be installed, prior to beginning any further ground disturbing activities.
 

You will be given an inspection card that lists common inspections on residential permits. This card will be used to track the inspections done on the project.

For an overview of the inspection process, including how to schedule an inspection, see our Residential Inspections page.
