Most municipalities will require a building permit for the construction of any deck, especially if it is to be attached to the house or it's more than 30 inches above ground.
We cannot stress enough the importance of consulting with your local building department about any home improvement project. Plus some homeowners insurance policies will not cover accidents involving construction that does not meet local codes.
There's a fee involved with most permit applications, but it's designed to cover the cost of a plan review before construction and the field inspections that'll be done after work begins. Inspections help insure that you're installing materials safely and according to code. Again, be sure to check with your building department to find out what inspections are required in your area. For example, in areas where frost footings are required, they'll probably want to inspect the depth of your footings before you fill them.
