Some LOOK for a Beautiful house, Others BUILD a Beautiful HOME

The most common question is, "Do I need a permit for this?"

A building permit is required if you plan to alter or change a building structure. Whether that means to add onto a property or even make certain repairs to the property. Permits are most certainly needed for all new construction of residential or commercial buildings.



 

* POOLS, DECKS, SHEDS, CONCRETE SLABS, BUILDING AN ADDITIONAL ROOM, CLOSING IN A GARAGE OR CARPORT, INSTALLING/MOVING WINDOWS OR DOORS, FENCES, ROOFS, NEW CONSTRUCTION * (just to name a few)



 

The reason for a permit is ultimately for your own protection and can save you from any future issues in the long run! The installation procedures need to be up to the states building codes. Every state has different codes based on the weather and climate, here in Florida, we are based on hurricane protection.



 

Many building companies include permits with their scope of work, however, home/business owners typically need to complete their own applications. Permits can be tricky though because depending on the type of job, other steps might need to be taken in order to retain a permit (engineering drawings, wind load calls, etc.) You absolutely want to avoid permit fines or a stop-work order after all your hard work!!



This is why it's very important to have a respectable relationship with building departments as a permitter. We can help you get things done in a timely manner and you will feel at ease to know the process was done correctly. Home wasn't built in a day!! HK is just a call or text away!!
