Permits are required for most types of construction work.  Please see the FAQ section for a specific discussion on types of permits and when they are required.

The permits and inspections are to verify the work is done correctly and complies with the applicable codes. Plan reviews are done to verify the work will be done correctly, before it is done. Also see the Building Codes Division website Permit Protects for information on codes, permits and contractors.
