Construction Exempt from Permits

-A A +A

Repair and replacement projects, which do NOT involve structural changes to a building, do not require a permit. Siding and gutters are such an example.

For example, shingle replacement will not require a permit. Replacement windows or doors do not require a permit, unless the existing opening will be made larger, which is a structural change. Note that there are minimum size requirements for all windows, including replacement. Cosmetic works, such as painting, wallpapering, tiling, carpeting, cabinetry or counter tops, does not require a permit. Re-installation of plumbing fixtures, such as tubs, sinks, and toilets, does not require a permit.
