Frequently Asked Questions: Building Permits
I’m planning on doing some home improvements. What type of work do I need a building permit for?
A building permit is required for home improvements such as room additions, patios, spas, pools, block walls and other projects. Please check with the Development Services Department before you begin your project to see whether you will need a permit. The permit is required before you begin construction. (In some cases, more than one permit may be required). For more information, please call (714) 990-7668.
