Residential Permits

There is no better feeling than coming "home" to a comfortable, well-designed, and safely constructed residence. Whether you own your home, rent from someone else, or rent out a property, you want to make sure that every project undertaken at your home/property is completely safely and according to City standards and State Building codes. Following the rules, even if it takes a little more time or money, is not only the law -- it's what will keep everyone in your house safe in an emergency.
