Building Permits Required -
Building permits are required for nearly all building and remodeling projects including furnace and air conditioner installations. Permits are always required for a roof, driveways, fences, and sheds. The contractor should should apply for the permit at the municipal clerk's office. By doing so, protection is offered for both parties. If the homeowner pulls the building permit for the contractor, they may be personally liable should there be an injury. As the homeowner, you may be unaware that the contractor may not be paying unemployment insurance, worker's compensation insurance, or carrying liability insurance, thus putting unknown liability on you. Work done prior to obtaining a permit, including early start permits, will result in the permit fee being doubled. Visit the Permits and Forms page for further information.
