Some permits for residential maintenance work and mechanical or plumbing work may be issued immediately over the counter. For example:
- Re-Window or exterior door change outs (same size and style being installed in the same opening)
- Air Conditioner
- Lawn Irrigation System
- Unit Heater
- Washing Machine
- Water Heater
- Water Softener
Residential permit applications with a scope of work other that the projects listed above must be submitted with detailed plans and/or a scope of work, and may take up to 10 business days to be reviewed for compliance with the building code.
All commercial permit applications must be submitted with detailed plans and/or a scope of work, and may take up to 15 business days to be reviewed.
If your permit application submittal information is complete, the process of review goes much more smoothly and there is less chance of delay while we contact you or your contractor for additional information. Our handouts on a variety of building subjects can be a great help in making sure your plans and application will have all the information that the plans examiner needs, so it’s a good idea to check them out.
