The specific permits required for a home addition vary by location but typically include:

  • Building Permit: Ensures the addition meets local building codes.
  • Electrical Permit: Required for any electrical work involved.
  • Plumbing Permit: Necessary if plumbing work is part of the addition.
  • Zoning Permit: Ensures the addition complies with local zoning laws. Your contractor will typically handle the permit application process, but it’s essential to verify that all necessary permits are obtained before construction begins.
