When is a permit required?
Permits are required when constructing, remodeling, or enlarging a building. Permits are also required for other improvements to your property.

Projects that are cosmetic, such as painting, wallpapering, carpeting, cabinets, and trim work do not require permits. Additionally, permits are not required when replacing fixtures on existing wiring or fixtures to existing plumbing.

When in doubt, always check by calling the Building Inspections Department at 972-287-6829.
