Our Utah Deck Work


We are so proud of the work that we do here in Utah.

While building a deck in Utah, there are some specific guidelines that are necessary to follow. It is important to follow all permitting and code rules as well as best practices for building decks in Utah. As Utah is a location that experiences moderate winters with snowfall, it is important to plan for harsher weather with your deck



Here are some important considerations for building a deck in Utah:

  1. Building codes: Utah follows the International Residential Code (IRC) for deck construction. The IRC provides guidelines for size, height, and spacing of deck components, as well as the required strength and durability of materials.

  2. Permits: A building permit may be required for deck construction, depending on the size and complexity of the project. Contact your local building department for more information.

  3. Climate considerations: Utah can experience harsh weather conditions, including heavy snow and strong winds. Your deck design should take these conditions into account and be built to withstand them.

  4. Footings and support structure: Your deck's footings and support structure must be able to support the weight of the deck, any furniture, and the people who will use it.

  5. Drainage: Adequate drainage must be provided to prevent water from pooling under the deck, which can cause rot and other damage.

  6. Fire safety: Decks constructed of combustible materials must comply with fire safety codes and regulations.
