When Do I Need a Building Permit?

home-at-night

You need to contact your city or county building department for more details, but typically a permit is needed for a new building, retaining walls, additions like an extra bedroom, and renovations like a garage conversion. You don’t need a permit for fences below a certain height (six feet in Gilbert County, Arizona, for example) or if you need to retile a roof. Contact a professional to learn more.
