I want to build a deck, do I need a permit?
Porches and decks less than 30 inches in height do not require a building permit; this means that decks more than 30 inches off the ground or a patio cover need a permit. Porches, decks and covers in the front yard exceeding the face of the farthest part of the house towards the street require a variance to install.
