What I meant was getting the job permitted and done, as this will grandfather it from future requirments.
I know deck standards had changed over the years, and folks who built decks with permits back in 1975, under those standards, would not have to rebuild the deck, assuming it lasted that long.
If I go get a permit now, to legalize the old deck, the deck won’t meet current requirements, so a permit would have to be pulled, it would then have to be rebuilt, and then inspected, based on new standards.
