Do you need a building permit?  Building permits and inspections are required for new construction, additions, and remodeling work to confirm that all structures meet applicable City, State and Federal building code requirements.

The City regulates construction and development to safeguard and ensure the health and safety of the public. As part of the permit process, plans are reviewed to ensure compliance with adopted codes. Building permits are issued for new construction as well as for additions to and remodeling of existing buildings and structures. Most repairs or alterations require a building permit, and permits are intended to protect homeowners to ensure that modifications comply with adopted regulations. If you are uncertain if you need a permit, please contact us and we will address your particular needs.
