A building permit is typically necessary for construction projects that alter the arrangement of walls, wiring, and/or pipes. The laws change from city to city. There are almost 7,000 municipalities and their needs in Titan Services' database. In order to ensure correct permission application compliance upon submission, our permit specialists work closely with the municipalities. The International Building Code (IBC), along with state, county, and city building codes, govern permit rules. Depending on the complexity of the work, permits are needed for electrical, plumbing, roof, mechanical, structural, HVAC, security, solar, and signs.
The first step in obtaining a building permit is to determine the extent of the construction and the associated trades. Various trades, including electrical, plumbing, and mechanical, may be required for a building project, and permissions may be required for each. City building inspectors and reviewers examine projects to make sure they adhere to zoning and building rules. Most often, when the permit application has been received, the governing jurisdiction examines the drawings and decides how much the permit will cost. The cost schedules for building permits are available online in many municipalities. A building permit can be obtained with help from Titan Services in all its facets.
