PERMITS ARE LOCALITY-SPECIFIC CONCRETE REGULATIONS
When it comes to pouring concrete—yes, even on your own property—many cities have laws and regulations in place to keep their residents safe. Getting, or “pulling,” a permit is a way to make sure your intended project complies with all these regulations. Applying for a permit generally can be done in many ways. The most common are applying in person at your local city department or applying online.
Just what kinds of projects need to have a permit on file with your city? That’s all up to local law. However, speaking from our experience as a local concrete company, there are some generalizations:
● Concrete Patios: No need for a permit.
● Concrete stoops: Permits are nearly always required.
● Concrete driveways: Sometimes, a permit is required, sometimes not.
However, again, these are generalizations. Your local government can provide you with area-specific requirements and laws you’ll need to follow. Even if you don’t think your concrete project would require a permit, it always pays to confirm your hunches with a quick phone call to the proper city office. This will save you time and money in the long run by eliminating any potential legal problems. In addition, when you know all laws are being followed, you can breathe easy and feel good about getting excited over your new stamped concrete structure.
