Why do I Need a Permit for my Little Project?

Some folks exploring home improvements or remodels often forget that they need permits from their local government before the job is started. Depending on your location, your local government could require a building permit for a job as small as a bathroom remodel project. Often times jobs, such a new workshop, back deck, or basement finish, also require permits.

So why do you need a Permit?

  1. First and foremost, building permits assure you that the electrical installation that was performed meets national code requirements or building code requirements. It’s for your safety. Since safety is one of Mesa Electric’s top priorities, we will not do a job without a permit if the governing building department requires it. We require permits on most jobs. One exception would be repairs; they usually don’t need a permit. You can count on us to know if your job needs an electrical permit.

  2. Secondly, when you sell your home, permits will provide evidence to a prospective buyer that improvements or renovations to your home were done correctly. If you fail to have permits for major work done on your home, you may face a problem when it comes time to sell.

And no, permits are not just a way for the municipality to charge you money and add to their budgets. Permits also aren't a way for your municipality to put obstacles in your way, making your building project more difficult with all their rules and regulations.
