Details on ‘What to Know About Permits’

[Gregg Cantor] having permits and building inspection approval is very important for your safety and protection as well as getting the added value in appraisals or when selling your home for most home improvement projects permits are typically required if you’re just doing interior remodeling and not affecting the building envelope which is windows doors roof and exterior waterproofing permits can easily be pulled online or over-the-counter without building plans at a relatively inexpensive cost I always recommend plumbing electrical and mechanical permits for minor remodels like kitchens and baths for more major projects with structural changes where footings and framing is involved such as whole homes additions second storeys bearing wall changes full construction documents with engineering are always required if a contractor tells you a permit isn’t required I would be very skeptical and my recommendation is to get a second opinion or contact your local building department
