I want to build a deck. What is the Application Process?
The process is as follows:
- You need to complete the Application Form.
- You need to provide three (3) site plans showing the location/dimensions of the deck.
- You need to provide three (3) copies of complete structural plans for the deck. Please refer to our “Minimum Plan Submission Requirements For Residential Projects.” You can also refer to Prince George's County’s standard deck drawings for more information.
- In addition to the complete structural plans, an International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Evaluation Report or Architectural Testing – Code Compliance Research Report (ATI-CCRR) is required if composite decking/composite railing is utilized in lieu of traditional pressure treated wood.
