Your bathroom or kitchen remodeling project will be fun! Looking at samples, discussing your bright ideas with your family, seeing the renovation come to life before your very eyes, and then finally enjoying the finished product. Even that “new construction smell” can be delightful under the right circumstances! But some of the more mundane, technical issues must be taken care of as well, and that includes the process of obtaining permits for your bathroom or kitchen remodel.
When you work with the best kitchen and bathroom designers in Arizona, you will have someone reliable there for you to answer your questions, but for now, here are some of the basics.
Process of Obtaining Permits for your Bathroom or Kitchen Remodel
According to the city of Mesa, Arizona, “a building permit is required when any structural change or major alteration is made to a building or when any new construction is undertaken. Permits for building, mechanical, plumbing and electrical work are required.” If a permit is required, the work will be inspected during construction and after completion to ensure compliance with the city’s building codes.
As noted by the city, you’re better off to discover that certain aspects of your plan cannot be accomplished before the project begins, or you would risk throwing money away or, worse, putting someone in harm’s way during the construction process.
When you work with the best kitchen and bathroom construction companies in Arizona, its representatives will most likely take care of most these permitting steps for you. You may have to sign some papers or answer some questions, but for the most part, you won’t have to worry about the process or will work with your construction company to complete it.
Obtaining permits for a bathroom or kitchen remodel project, however, is important in order to ensure the integrity and safety of the construction. The permitting process also ensures that your proposed changes are appropriate for that neighborhood or area of the city and that they meet local zoning standards.
And, simply stated, permits are required by law for certain types of projects, and failing to obtain them could mean fines, penalties, and demolition of unauthorized projects. It could also cause irrevocable damage to the reputation and financial well-being of the construction company.
