Construction mistakes can be costly and dangerous. Building and land use permits help prevent mistakes and protect families, homes and investments. Certified inspectors ensure work is performed safely and to code. Building codes ensure structures are safe from structural failure, fire hazards from electrical/heating systems, electrical shock and health risks.
Permits create permanent records of work and inspections. Oregon law requires homeowners to disclose all remodel work, with or without permits, during home sales.
