If I am having my project done by a licensed contractor, should I rely on my contractor to get the permits?

Often there is a misunderstanding between the contractor and owner as to whom is responsible for obtaining the permits. Be sure that it is clear who is responsible. If the contractor were to be responsible for obtaining the permits, it would be wise to have the contractor provide proof they did so. Or, you may call us at 285-1960 for verification. The owner is ultimately responsible for the work, including permits and required inspections, on their property.
