Question: Do I need a building permit to add a deck to my house?


Yes:

A building permit will be required anytime you add, or alter a structural member of a building. The girders, joists, posts, etc. are all structural members of a deck


Here is a copy of �Appendix (M) of the NC Building Code� that pertains to decks. These are the code requirements that must be met for a deck in North Carolina.
