Fence Post Holes and deck pier footings!

People often ask about building permits for fence installation and deck installation.  Also we are not required to have a permit for fence post installation.  Some deck pier footings require a building inspector.  It all depends on you deck plan.  We are very familiar with building inspectors. 

Please read below.  Refer to your local city hall for more information!  

What projects do NOT require a building permit?A building permit is not required for a detached accessory structure (gazebo, tool shed, etc.) which measures less than 10m (108 square feet) in area. Below is a list of other projects that do not require a permit. Note: Although a building permit may not be required, you must still comply with the requirements of the Zoning By-law and Ontario Building Code requirements.
  • fences (other than for swimming pools)
  • decks not forming part of a principle entrance to a dwelling unit and less than 600mm (24 inches) above grade
  • asphalt roof shingling
  • eaves troughs
  • minor repairs to masonry
  • damp proofing basements
  • air conditioning units or heat pumps added to existing forced-air systems
  • kitchen or bathroom cupboards without plumbing
  • free-standing satellite dishes
  • replace existing forced-air furnace (no duct work alterations)
  • replacing siding or windows (provided there are no structural changes)
  • pool heaters
  • painting and decorating
