Permitting with the City of Austin can seem like a daunting task – but in reality with Skelly Build you won’t have to manage much. The renovation scope dictates the permit or permits that are required for your project. A few FAQ’s are below.
Why get a permit? Simply, the City of Austin requests that permits are pulled for any plumbing, electrical, HVAC relocation, structural or concrete work, or removing over 64 square feet of drywall. There are many additional minimum caveats but those are the simple terms that apply to most renovations. All work completed by Skelly Build is by licensed professionals where required.
With a permit, inspectors visit your home at different stages of the job to verify building codes, city codes, and applicable ordinances are being completely correctly. These different stages include, but are not limited to, wallboard, insulation, framing, concrete, foundation, building layout, energy final, final building, and tree inspections. Plumbers, electricians and HVAC contractors are required to pull sub permits under the main permit. An engineer is also involved in any framing or foundation modifications- big or small. These requirements ensure these trades are licensed and trained professionals who are up to date with the latest codes and licensing.
