Most homeowners hate building permits. Maybe it is because they don’t like the government telling them what they can or cannot do. It could be the delays or costs. Whatever the reason, contractors and installers are asked daily by homeowners if they will do their job without pulling a building permit. A licensed contractor that does work without pulling the proper permit is putting his license in jeopardy and can face disciplinary action and fines by the state. Homeowners that perform work on their property without the proper permit can face fines as well as significant reconstruction issues. It is against local and state law to perform non-permitted construction work and the building code enforcement is cracking down on this type of activity.
