One of the key issues to be considered with any bathroom remodel is the potential permits required for the potential project. Some of the circumstances that will require a permit application with your Bathroom Remodel activities include:
Any demolition of load-bearing walls will require a building permit to accomplish. In simple terms, anything involving structural changes to the residence will require a building permit. As such, demolishing even a section of a wall instead of the entire structure will require city inspectors to verify safety conditions for such changes before a permit can be approved.
Plumbing and Piping Changes
Changes that will affect the plumbing network will need a permit. These changes, however, refer to major aspects such as piping and water flow management. Changing the faucets on your sink, for example, won’t require a permit – but adding a new sink or a bathtub will need approval from your local building authority. Anything affecting the sewer lines will also need a permit.
Activities that involve changing the wiring of your residence will need a permit. This can include projects such as adding new sockets to the wall or rerouting the wiring in the lighting to accommodate additional fixtures.
