Decks and Roof Decks

The addition of decks to existing buildings requires a building permit application with plans if any part of the walking surface is more than 30 inches above grade (a roof deck also requires a building permit). Some decks may be approved over the counter (OTC) by the Planning Department. Others require neighborhood notification.


For questions, you can call the Planning counter at 628.652.7300 or email pic@sfgov.org where planners are able to assist you.
