I'm looking to extend out my deck in the backyard. The deck is original, put it by the builder for the previous owner. I'm looking to add a "step-up" portion to it and extend that part out and understand that I likely need a permit to do this. Does anyone have some insight for how to secure a permit or a website with some information?

You will be able to get more specific information if you post the city or county that you live in.

Contact your local inspection Department they are the one's who issue them. Also, if you live in a S/D that has an HOA you may need thie approval first as well.

Several years ago I did this exact same project of extending my deck. I lived within City of Raleigh limits, and had to get a permit. It was a very easy process - you stop in at the City of Raleigh permit offices & provide them with a plan of what you're doing, they stamp the plan, and you can get started. They then scheduled two inspections for me (you just call when you're ready for each one) - one after footings were in & extra joists attached & the second one after the project was completed. Several years ago I remember it being ~$60 for the permit.
