What is the process to getting a lattice patio cover permit?
There are two paths to getting a city permit depending on the design.
The first path is simple and usually faster if the lattice patio cover is designed within the standard ICC engineering plans. We highlight the engineering plans and draft a plot plan of the lot. The process can take up to 1-2 weeks to get a city permit.
For the second path if the patio cover is designed outside the standard engineering plans. When this is the case, we must get site-specific engineering plans from an engineer with a wet stamp. A few examples are to use custom base plates in lieu of concrete footings, attaching a header beam to a house wall, custom angles, A-frame roofs, etc. This process will take up to 1 month to complete.
We will also need to submit the plans for reviewal by the city which can take up to 1-2 months.
