Homeowner Guidelines

GUIDELINES FOR BASIC CONSTRUCTION OR IMPROVEMENTS:

1. If you have a contractor doing work for you make sure they pull a permit BEFORE the work is started. This is a safeguard for you. Make sure that the contractor is “licensed”. If you have questions concerning an advertisement, ask to see a copy of their license. Check with your local Building Department for any outstanding concerns/workmanship regarding your choice of contractor/s.
