Plan & Permit Expediting
Can your company help applying for the necessary permits?
Besides the designing, construction and installation services that we offer, we also assist you with obtaining all the construction permits that the city requires to have in order to start working on your new or existing porch.
We have a team of experienced construction permit specialists that will help you in following your permits from submission through approval, freeing you from wasted trips and construction permit requirement deficiencies. We work all the time with all building departments, and we do know how the Planning Permission and Building Control Regulations department works and we know exactly what we are supposed to do to expedite these permits so we can start work on your new deck, sooner rather than later.
What if we need to make any changes to the initial permit application?
If changes need to be made to the initially submitted plans, in order to have the permits issued, we will consult you, make the necessary changes and resubmit them. This way, we make sure that both parts are satisfied, the client gets the right work done, according to all the rules and the regulation that are required by the city. When we leave, you will have a fully functional, safe and beautiful deck to enjoy with family and friends, without being worried if it will pass the City inspection. All our projects are completed in full compliance with the norms, rules and regulations City has, so that there will be no issue at any given moment.
What exactly is permit expediting and how does it work?
Permit expediting gives homeowners the same change realtors and contractors have. The secret weapon in getting the necessary permits faster so that they can enjoy a finished project, earlier rather than later. The secret weapon is to hire building permit expediters to help with the projects that need to get to the City before getting approves and permits released. These buildings permit expediters are consultants who take on the behind-the-scenes role and do the work for you. Over the years, we at Decks Repair Chicago learned some stuff and we like to take care of the permits ourselves, but in the same manner: fast and secure.

All your services follow the same steps?
Yes. The same goes for rooftop decks construction. Whenever we are asked to build such a deck we start by making sure that the particular roof is strong enough to support an average weight of 55 lbs. per square foot. If it is, we can make the plans, get all the paperwork and permits ready and start the deck construction. The permit expediting service plays an important role in a construction of restoration projects because even though the plans are in place, the project cannot start without City's approval. So for us, and for all our clients alike, being able to get the permits approved earlier rather than later means time saved that can be invested in the next steps of the project so that we can finish everything earlier and you and your friends can enjoy the outdoors on your new deck.
