Think You Don't Need a Permit for Home Renovation? Think AgainIt may seem like unnecessary hassle and expense to secure a permit for home improvements or renovations, but any number of homeowners can testify that the cost and consequences of ignoring the requirements are higher.

Aside from the plight of inferior workmanship that sometimes is the hallmark of a job performed by a contractor who neglects to secure a proper permit and call for needed inspections, there are possible legal and financial consequences. Obtaining necessary plan reviews in order to secure a permit can add time delays and additional cost to a planned renovation or building project, but they should be considered a necessary part of the job.
