Roof required over deck?


I am getting ready to get some estimates for a deck attached to the rear of my house. It will be approx 12 X 24 and 7 ft off the ground. ( I live on the side of a hill and first floor is 7 foot above ground in rear).

Talking to a guy this morning and his statement was: "If a deck is over 3 ft off the ground, it requires a roof"

It that true? Going to talk to the township as soon as I get home next week. Just wanted to see if anyone ever heard of that.

Thanks

....yep...requires a hot tub, bar and outdoor kitchen as well.




No, it doesnt need a roof. It needs a railing.
