Permits are required for new construction, tenant improvements, and for alterations to an existing structure.
Over the Counter
We issue residential mechanical, re-roof, residential solar, demolition, and some residential plumbing permits over the counter; these permits do not typically have the same submittal requirements as other building permits and have a faster review time.
When you are ready for your inspection, please call our inspection hotline: (360) 683-4908 ext. 2. We typically perform inspections Tuesday-Friday between 10am-2pm.
