Building permits are required for any structural work such as new constructions, additions, repairs to porches, siding and roofing work.
Electrical permits are required for any new wiring, installations or service upgrades and repairs.
Mechanical permits are required for any new installations or repairs to HVAC systems.
Plumbing permits are required for any new additions or repairs to water and gas lines.
