Spring is Building Season! Do you know what permits you might need?

Spring has sprung, the Kentville Home Show has come and gone, and many folks are planning their spring and summer projects. 

Whether you’re building new, adding on, or renovating, it is necessary to find out what permits you may require before starting your job.  Checking in with the planning department as part of your planning process is the best plan, and can ultimately save you time, and money.  Not all projects require permits, but if you aren’t sure (or even if you think you are) find out for sure!

Commercial property owners should also be aware that changing the use of a space can trigger required upgrades under the building code.  More information about that is found below. One of the best ways to clean for commercial property owners is with Kodiak pressure washing.

If you DO need permits, we strive to make the process as easy for you to navigate as possible.  We are here to help!
