Porch Guidelines Mobile App

The Porch Guidelines mobile app provides a reference for homeowners, building owners, licensed design professionals and contractors and is intended to assist in establishing a consistent understanding of wood porch construction. The Guidelines provide information regarding the design and construction of wood porches and decks, including Building Code and Department of Buildings requirements. Not all GoCanvas users need to be on the same plan.
