Do I need a permit for a deck at my home?

deck

To help answer some of your questions, decks do require a permit called a zoning certificate with Clayton.  Depending on the following you might also need a building permit with Montgomery County Building Regulations.

You do not need a building permit if you can answer yes to all of the following:

  • 200 Square feet or less in size
  • 30" or less above grade (deck walking surface to grade/ground)
  • The deck is not the front entrance door
  • The deck is detached from the house

Zoning Certificate application may be found at http://www.clayton.oh.us/DocumentCenter/View/1125
