Benefits of Permitting
Getting the proper permits for home improvements projects is not only required but provides multiple benefits for you as the homeowners.
Your home is typically your largest investment. Protect your property value, ensure a safe environment for current and future tenants under the minimum building code standards adopted, and prevent costly repairs or fines subject to work being completed without a building permit. The Building Permit Resources below is a great place to start when determining what type of permit you might need.
