How do I know which permit I need?

First, decide whether or not it requires a commercial or a residential inspection.

  • Residential Permit:
    • Those where the public does not come into your home for any type of business function.
  • Commercial Permit:
    • This requires the public coming into your home for business.
    • Examples of required permits are home daycare, home assisted living and any other similar home-based businesses.
    • The obvious are retail stores, gas stations, restaurants, etc.

Second, decide which trade is being worked on?

  • Plumbing
    • Water lines, sewer lines, cutting of any plumbing pipes, etc.
  • Mechanical or Fuel Piping
    • Heat and air repairs, gas tanks installed, gas stoves, or gas log fireplaces.
  • Electrical
    • any type of repairs or replacement of electrical items
  • Building
    • Decks, stair replacements, sheathing repairs replacing rotten wood on the exterior of your home, renovations or new construction
  • Mobile Home
