Are Permits Required When Adding a New Room to a Home?

Being able to add new space into the home that you have is always a good thing to think about. Sometimes the home you own is just not big enough. Being able to add onto the home can provide not only more room but the ability to have unlimited options with what to do with the extra space you can have. There are some important considerations to keep in mind for this room addition though.

Hiring a Professional

Hiring a professional to do the room addition that you’d like to have is always a good idea. Not only do they know what needs to be done but they also understand the process and what is required to make the addition not only usable and strong, but also legal to have added to your home.


The professional is going to provide you with everything you need to have done, as well as further information about the addition that you might not have known.


Permits for Room Additions

Permits are required when adding any room or addition to the side of your home. You need to make sure that you pay for the permit through the county offices. Usually, this can be included in the contractor fee and they will go out and get the permits for you, so you do not have to worry about doing so or not getting the right ones.

There may be multiple permits required for the addition that you want to have added, due to the electric, plumbing, addition itself and other specifics that go into putting a new room onto your home.
