How to Get Your New Deck Approved in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania

Posted July 7, 2022 in 3D Design, Blog, Decks, Design/Build, General, Pool, Videos

In Coopersburg, Pennsylvania, permit and inspection requirements for new decks vary depending on your local zoning requirements. Additionally, you might live within a homeowner’s association that has strict requirements on what your deck should look like and how the surrounding area of your new deck should complement the neighborhood. Oftentimes, these requirements and design restrictions leave homeowners frustrated with a cookie-cutter design and less than stellar craftsmanship when it comes to building a new deck.

Working with a design/build team can help you, your municipality, and other approval agencies visualize exactly how your new space will look and feel how it will connect to the surrounding area. This can help you overcome many of the hurdles that homeowners experience working with townships and eliminate the stress that it typically causes!

Here are three ways working with a design/build team can expedite the approvals of your new deck in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania:

  • Visualize exactly how your new deck will look

Expanding your living space with a new deck in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania is always a great option. But, without the right design, plan, and material knowledge, a new deck in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania can quickly become a boring, high-maintenance structure that ends up being an eyesore in your backyard and could cause safety issues. This is why municipalities, townships, and HOA’s have strict requirements for building a new deck in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania.

We know visualization is key in your journey to creating the backyard of your dreams and we never want you to have to stress about working with your township, municipality, or HOA. Our proven design process eliminates the guessing games by allowing your designer to help you develop a custom 3D design that aligns the visions with your local requirements and enables officials to see exactly what your new deck will look like– no surprises!

  • Feel how it will connect with your home and the surrounding area

When selecting the right materials for your new deck in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania you will need to ensure your deck contractor is using the material that will minimize maintenance and maximize safety so you are not always stubbing your toe on rusty nails or rescuing the kids from painful splinters. You will also need to ensure they select materials that align with the local requirements.

Our custom, virtual, 3D design process allows you and local officials to see exactly how your new space will look and feel how it will affect the surrounding areas. The images are easily translated into language the township can fully grasp and take into consideration.  This elaborates on the project at hand for easy review and approval which ultimately expedites the overall process of designing and building your new outdoor living space in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania.

  • One point of contact throughout the entire process

Multiple different contractors applying for numerous kinds of permits for your new deck or pool in Coopersburg Pennsylvania can lead to confusion, miscommunication, and delays in your permits, approvals, and inspections. This is why it’s important to have one point of contact that is responsible for all aspects of your project. But, if you’ve never managed the build of an outdoor living space you could feel overwhelmed and lost if you tackle it alone!
