Yes! Get Decked takes care of applying for all inspections and proper Building and Zoning permits. If you have a Homeowners’ Association, we will submit the HOA request on your behalf! We will need a survey or plot plan of your house/property to obtain a permit, however. It will look like a map of your lot and home with the measurements on it. This is to show where the new deck will be built and make sure it won’t violate any regulations. Please note, if you are in New Castle County and don’t have a survey or plot plan, your deed will show who did the original survey and often, the firms are still in business and can print out and fax or email you a copy, usually for a small fee. If you cannot locate one, New Castle County will require you to get your property resurveyed, which can take up to 2 weeks and will be an additional fee of $400.00 for a new official survey! If your home is fairly new, you may want to check with your builder, or mortgage company. Some Other contractors may redeck and tell you no permit is needed…but that is only true if they are only redecking. If the rail is modified, a permit and inspection is always needed!
