City to host free deck-building clinic for residents

April 18, 2023 at 4:49 pm

As we approach deck-building season, we often see a significant rise in deck permit applications. To assist homeowners and contractors within the City of Castle Pines, the City's Building Department is offing a FREE clinic to help applicants navigate the building permit process and provide instruction intended to keep deck projects flowing smoothly from start to finish. This information will be based on the 2021 International Residential Code. One lucky attendee will be eligible to win one FREE deck building permit, with all associated fees waived by the City.

This approximately 2.5-hour clinic will cover a variety of topics, including:

      • Applicable building code with all pertinent code books, references, and guides.
      • The permitting process, including the submission of plans and other required construction documents.
      • The plan review process.
      • Requirements for a planning review.
      • Overview of the inspection process, including required inspections, inspection request procedures, and areas that the inspector will focus on.
      • Methods of construction.
      • Material requirements.

Building department staff will be on hand to offer tips, describe common pitfalls and answer any questions.
