No Fee Building Permit

Application Process


A permit is required for non-structural or cosmetic work such as:
  • Prefab shed less than 144 square feet in size
  • Siding
  • Window replacement
This process is basically a registration of the job, and carries no fee. We check for code compliance and ensure that the contractor is carrying the proper insurances.
