Building permits are required to construct, add, alter, remove, demolish, or repair a structure. The city also requires building permits for maintenance items such as roofing, siding and/or window replacements. A permit ensures proper services are provided to safeguard life, health, property and public welfare. If work is done improperly, such work can become unsafe for homeowners and their families, as well as devalue their home.
