Renovations Permits: Research Before You Work

Posted by Alexis Knox on Friday, July 19th, 2019 at 2:22pm.

Living in the age of HGTV brings along a lot of desire to purchase "fixer upper" properties. What we are also seeing along with this fixer upper craze is the trend of homeowners cutting out the middle-man and taking on renovations themselves. While I 100% support taking on these renovations, but it is important to remember to always get the necessary permits. Most people are surprised at just how many home projects actually require permits. Researching/applying for the necessary permits should always be one of the first steps when planning for your home projects. Always check with the city to ensure that you have applied for the correct permits, because if not fines and fees could occur. Most homeowners don't realize that projects as small as replacing a water heater require a permit!

Below you'll find links to the City of Bryan and the City of College Station websites where you can find all the contact information and fee schedules for permitting.
