How long does it take to get a permit?
Some permits, such as plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and residential (one or two family dwelling) re-roof, re-side, and replacement windows (same-for-same replacement windows) can be issued at the time you apply. Most other residential permit applications (that are complete and accurate with correct plans) may take up to five working days to process, small commercial remodel/tenant finish applications can take two to three weeks, and large commercial applications can take four to six weeks. Please allow yourself enough time so that our staff can help you through the process and issue your permit before you are ready to start work. This is especially true during the spring and summer construction season.
