CHECK FIRST! Most home improvement projects require a permit. A permit is usually required, but not limited to:
- Residential work (fences, garages, water heaters, concrete, pools, re-roofs, windows, etc.)
- Electrical systems
- Plumbing systems
- HVAC (heating & cooling, ventilation)
Homeowners: When dealing with a contractor, it is in your best interest to have them pull permits and arrange for the proper inspections. The permit fees are the same for contractor or homeowner. We strongly recommend that when you hire someone to do work for you, that you ask them to provide you with a copy of the permit. If the homeowner is doing the work, a homeowner's affidavit is required to be filed.
Please Note: A 24 hour notice is required for inspections. A permit will be cancelled when no inspections are requested and conducted within six (6) months the date of issuance or the date of a previous inspection. Cancelled permits will not be refunded or reinstated.
