Building Permits
Building permit fees for new structures are based on the square footage of the structure.  Our office follows a formula using the national average for price per square foot and a multiplier for the type of construction.  When submitting an application for a new structure, please DO NOT submit payment at that time.  The building permit is to be paid for at the time of issuance.

The fee for remodeling projects is based on the value of the job.  (material and labor)
