How can I tell whether a permit is required?

Generally speaking, a permit is required if you are starting a new construction project, remodeling and/or planning to change the footprint of an original structure, changing the roof pitch, or making any structural changes. It's better to assume that you need a permit and check with the Permit Assistance Center rather than proceed on a project and find out later that it is not in compliance.
