Homeowners General Permit Information

Permits are needed for a variety of construction projects, from home additions to swimming pools and spas, sheds, pergolas and gazebos, fences, windows, doors and more.

Why do I need a permit?

Not only are permits required by law, but they also help protect you and your family from having unsafe work performed on your home and prevent you from having to cover costly repairs or live under dangerous conditions. Permitting and inspection ensures that the work performed on your home is done safely and meets minimum code standards for quality and safety.
