Building Permit

When do I need a building permit?

Building permits are required for virtually any new construction, addition, remodeling project, or structural alteration as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing projects. Any work started without an approved building permit is subject to a stop work order and an investigative fee (equal to the permit fee) will be charged to the contractor.
