Why Do I Need a Permit?
When you take out a permit, you are paying to have a certified inspector come out to make sure work is done safely and to code. You know that you are protecting your family and also the value of your home.
Construction mistakes can be extremely costly and, in some cases, even deadly. Permits empower you to get safe, quality workmanship and avoid big problems down the line.
When selling your home, you are now required by Oregon law to fully disclose all remodeling work and whether or not permits were obtained. With permits and inspections, you can expect a smoother closing process, free of last-minute hassles, inspections and repair work if the home isn't up to code.
What is the purpose of the permits and codes?
Insist on permits! It doesn't matter whether you do the work as the homeowner or you hire a licensed contractor to do the work. It simply does not pay to cut corners when protecting the safety of those in your household or the value of your biggest financial asset, your home.
