Building permits are required for new construction and most remodeling projects. Some of the most commonly obtained permits are for roofing, siding, decks, patio doors, and pools. Separate permits are needed for mechanical, plumbing and electrical. Homeowners can do their own work. However, if a contractor is performing the work, they must be either State or City licensed.
