Do I need a permit to build a deck, porch, pergola, or patio cover?
Yes.
Any structure, including decks and porches less than 30” above the ground, require a building permit per Sec. 16-4-20 of the Municipal Code. Please note that any structure must be located on your property and meet the Town’s setback and offset requirements. Prior to beginning any construction, it is recommended that you contact the Town of Windsor Permit Technician at (970) 674-2436 to see if a permit is required.
