Why You Need a Design and Permit Drawing Service in the GTA

Before a homeowner begins building a deck, they are required to submit construction details to our municipality. The City wants the opportunity to approve the details prior to starting on construction. This is done to ensure your deck is safe, and aligned with relevant building codes and regulations.

We have completed 1,000s of permit drawings in Toronto as deck builders, never with an issue. Regardless of how simple or complex you want your deck, permit drawings outline everything in a clean, easy to understand format. It is examined and approved on our end by architectural experts, designers, and builders.

There is no reason to go about this on your own. Let us be your representative. One of our experienced builders can help guide you through the early stages of BCIN design, provide architecture services, and assist in the permit drawing process.

The Inner Workings of Toronto’s Best Permit Drawing Service

A building permit is local government allowing construction of a structure to move forward, ensuring it is in full compliance with health, safety, and environmental regulations. Though residential permit drawings aren’t always required, they are in certain instances mandatory for deck projects, garages, major renovations, secondary suited, sunroom construction, and additions. This is where our BCIN design and permit drawing services come into play. Please note, a deck permit drawing at minimum is required for
any deck that’s over two feet in elevation and/or is over 108 sq. ft. in size. There’s no ifs, ands, or buts around it.

What is Included in a Permit Drawing for a Deck?

  • Backyard details including images of the proposed deck, an outline of any existing buildings, and any other structural details.
  • A frame layout, demonstrating footing location and size, beam location and size, joist location and size, and any other relevant framing details such as deck posts.
  • A front view of the deck, in a drawing that clearly shows your house, the height of the deck, height of the railing, and depth of the concrete footings.
  • A cross-section view that demonstrates how the deck is attached to the house, how the beams are attached to the post, how the joists are attached to the beam, and how the posts are attached to the footings.
  • A side view of the deck that shows the elevation of railings, stairs, and any other related details.

With over 30 years of experience, we know every project is different. Some decks may need additional details in design, architecture, and in the permit drawing itself. Once you give your approval on the design and drawing of your deck, we will attach your permit drawings to your permit application, submit it to the building department, and within maximum 7 to 10 business days, you should know if your deck’s been approved.

I feel very fortunate to have chosen GTA DECKS as I am very happy with the quality of their work and with the way they communicated with me... throughout the process. The guys were respectful and professional and continued working as well as keeping the area clean under harsh weather conditions.They were very fast and efficient too: removed the old 800 sq ft deck in three hours on the first day, packed up the debris and disposed of them using their own bins. They installed the new Trex composite deck much faster than I expect and it turned out beautiful! I can’t wait for the patio season to show off my backyard to my friends and family! I highly recommend GTA DECKS for the high quality of their craftsmanship, their speed, and professionalism. Thank you guys!read more
