Do I need a permit?

There can be some hesitancy when it comes to getting a permit, with people often believing it will make their taxes go up or delay the process. In reality, a permit may be the best insurance policy you can get against poor workmanship or dangerous conditions for your remodel. As a general rule, anything built new (like an addition) or anything that involves plumbing or electricity will be required to get a permit. Many communities have policies in place that freeze your home’s assessed value for 3 years after your remodel to avoid a sudden increase in your tax bill and having an independent third party come out to inspect the work that’s being done is a benefit that will give you welcome peace of mind.
