Save Money, Time by Contacting Local Officials Before Rebuilding Home
Move your Hurricane Laura recovery forward by making sure you have the right information before you repair and rebuild your storm-damaged home.
Contact your community’s floodplain, building and permitting departments to determine if you need a local permit to begin repairs and if you need to start the local inspection process to determine if your home or business is substantially damaged. Rebuilding the right way now could save you money and time later.
Contact Local Officials About Permitting Before You Start Work
It’s important to talk to your local officials to ensure the time and money you invest in repairing and rebuilding meets all local codes and ordinances.
Permits may be required for work on parts of your home like the roof, walls, siding, foundation, plumbing and the heating and air conditioning system.
If you live in a high-risk flood zone, you also need a permit for floodplain development from your local officials.
