Post Hole Digging Questions

March 17, 2019

DO I NEED A BUILDING PERMIT FOR MY FENCE PROJECT?

No. You do not need a building permit to erect a fence on your property. You will however need to check with your local municipality for height and front yard restrictions.

DO I NEED A BUILDING PERMIT FOR MY DECK PROJECT?

Each municipality has different rules so to ensure you are building a structure legally, please check with your local city/town building department. Normally, if a deck is 24 inch less a permit is not required.

Post Hole Digging for Sono tubes / Deck Post Holes!  What is a sono tube?

March 27, 2019

What is a sono tube? Sono tubes area cylinder tubes made of multiple layers of thick card board.  You can purchase sono tubes at your local building supply stores.  Sono tubes range in sizes from 6inch to 30plus inch width.  When building decks typical sizes area 8inch, 10inch, 12inch and possible 18inch.  Tubes usually come in 8 foot lengths.  Master Post Hole Digger is able to cut the tubes in half to 4 foot lengths. 


Why use them?  Footings and piers (sono tubes) are designed to support the weight of a deck through all weather and stress.  Sono tubes create a smooth sided piers that can resist uplift caused by frost. Also it depends on your location and city requirements!  Some cities require concrete piers (sono tubes) for deck building.  Contact your local city building department for more information. 

Procedure:  â€‹Master Post Hole Digger will drill the holes, set the sono tubes in the ground, our team will fill the holes with concrete, we can ground level or bring above grade and we install the brackets.  If you require holes to be building inspected we can pre-drill holes and fill same day after the city's approval.
