Are you getting a patio cover building permit?
In some areas permits are not required, contact your building department to verify.
If you're getting a permit you will first need to contact your building department to find out what your local code requirements are, the next step is to make sure the quote we provide you meets all the building dept. requirements, send us a email or give us a call to go over the details of your kit.
Your local region will have specific load requirements and with a quick search or a phone call you should be able to get the information you need. Some terms your building dept. may use include live load, ground snow load, roof design load, wind speed, wind exposure, seismic load, patio height, frost line and property line setback.
Note: Ground Snow Load and Roof Design Load are different, verify your snow rating when consulting your building department.
