Why Do I Need a Permit?

Permits help protect structures and investments and prevent mistakes.

The permit process includes inspection of all work to make sure it has been done safety and to code. Construction mistakes can be exasperating, extremely costly and, in some cases, even dangerous.

Oregon law requires that those selling residential dwelling must fully disclose all remodeling work and whether or not permits were obtained.
