Gazebos are covered, deck-type leisure structures that are detached from the principal structure. To erect a gazebo of any size, a building permit must be obtained, and site plans showing existing and proposed structure location(s), including well and/or septic (if applicable), must be submitted. Structural plans also are required.
Electrical work for gazebos requires an application for an Electrical Permit by a Master Electrician licensed with Prince George’s County.
If your home is located in a subdivision with a Homeowner’s Association (HOA), a separate approval from the HOA may be necessary. Unless erected by the homeowner, all home improvement projects require that a contractor licensed with the Maryland Home Improvement Commission is used.
