Thinking about replacing your water heater or converting part of your garage into an office? Before you open your tool box, ask yourself one simple question:
“Got Permits?”

Even small home improvement projects may require a building permit. Faulty installations can cause fires, flood damage and other hazards, and also force you to make costly repairs when you sell your home.

Our “Got Permits” building safety campaign is designed to provide you with simple facts about building permits and the inspections that come with them in order to help you protect your family’s safety and the value of your home.
