If you are planning any type of home remodeling project for this summer, you may need a permit. Contact the building department at City Hall, 708-343-8700, to determine which projects need permits and which do not.

Permits are generally needed for any project that adds, removes or alters any plumbing, electrical, HVAC and structural changes of a building.

Permits are required so that the work meets a necessary level of safety assured by building codes. If the work is being done by a professional contractor, permits guarantee the contractor is bonded and has insurance in case anything goes wrong.
