One of the major advantages to hiring a contractor for your upcoming remodeling project is the turnkey project management services that most companies offer. There is more work and hurdles than meet the eye for the standard home improvement project.
Many states and cities require a permit for certain types of remodeling activity. This can vary by area, work type, or project dollar value. Knowing when to pull a permit and what projects require permitting is an important step in the planning of any siding, roof and window replacement project.
North Carolina’s permitting compliance is significantly less involved than other states. Raleigh, NC is the only major metro city in the state that requires a contractor or homeowner to pull a permit prior to residential remodeling activity. Homeowners and contractors must contact and provide all required information to the city of Raleigh prior to the start of any residential construction. A permit filing and processing fee will also be administered by the city at this time. Metro areas like Charlotte, Asheville, Greensboro and Winston-Salem (and their surrounding suburbs) have less ‘red tape’ when it comes to residential remodeling of siding, roofs and windows.
The requirement of permitting for residential construction varies from city to city. Contact Hatch Homes to learn if permitting will be a necessary component of your upcoming project.
