Q?Will We Need a Building Permit?
A.
A new custom deck will require a building permit from your local town building department, but be assured that Driscoll Decks will assist you in filing your permit application.
Most fiberglass deck repair work does not require a building permit, unless we are re-building the deck including the railings. The Inspector wants to make sure the new railings are installed to code: 200 lbs concentrated strength per infill (railing section between posts). Hardscape work does not require a building permit.
Q?What is the Building Permit Process?
A.
As mentioned, Driscoll Decks will assist with your building permit application. Once a permit is issued, there are three (3) inspections by the building department:
  1. An open hole inspection, is to assure that the post or footing holes (later filled with concrete) are the proper dept and width. Driscoll use 6 x 6 p/t wood for our structural posts (columns) which require a minimum 12″ concrete footing
  2. An open framing inspection, is to assure that the substructure has used pressure-treated lumber, been securely nailed-off and properly built using the right compatible galvanized hardware such as post standoffs, ledger locks, joist hangers, hurricane clips, and framing angel brackets.
  3. A final inspection, is to assure that the new deck has been finished properly with decking boards, railings and stairs all installed according to the building codes. Once a final inspection has been approved, a Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) is issued.
