Every year about this time we start fielding questions in our inbox about home improvements in Tooele UT. If you are one of those that are considering fixing up your Tooele house, then listen up. I found some articles over the weekend that might be helpful. . Initialy the Q & A from  RISMediax talks about getting that building permit before you start your work. 

After that we have posted other articles with tips on improvements & remodeling and which ones are considered the best investments.

First things first! 

Q: Should I Always Get a Permit before Making Home Improvements?

A: To save both time and money, some people avoid getting building permits. But most cities require them. Tooele certainly does.

Besides ensuring safety during construction – city housing inspectors sometimes stop by the job to check on the progress of projects at key points – permits are also a source of revenue.

Cities charge a fee when a building permit is issued. Also, work done with a building permit can result in an increase in the homeowners’ property taxes because, in general, a home improvement increases the assessed value of the property.

Permits are usually required when any structural work is planned or the basic living space of a home is altered. They generally cover new construction, repairs, alterations, demolition, and additions to a structure. Some jurisdictions require the permit to be posted in a visible spot on the premises while the work is being done.

Besides structural changes, permits also may be needed to cover the installation of foundations for tanks and equipment, as well as the construction or demolition of ducts, sprinkler systems, or standpipe systems.

By law, all buildings must have a building permit and a certificate of occupancy before the improvements can be used (occupied).
