What requires a permit to be built or installed?

All buildings including out-buildings and garages require a permit before they are built. Individuals seeking to make changes and alterations to, or installations of electrical systems, plumbing, HVAC systems, and driveways must obtain a permit before work begins.  It is not just new construction that requires permitting; other common projects that require Inspection Services include basement remodeling, kitchen remodeling, re-roofing, re-siding, swimming pools and decks.  The Village website includes detailed information for each of these types of projects.

Check with Building Inspection Services if you are unsure of what work needs a permit or what type of permit you need. Their number is 262-250-4760. Each of these projects will then need to be inspected by the building, fire, and/or electrical inspector periodically throughout the process to ensure compliance with building and fire codes.
