Permits are not just for new construction, but for remodeling as well. In many cases, a permit is required for repair or replacement of existing features, such as replacing windows. A plumbing, electrical, or mechanical permit is required for any additions or changes to the structure's existing system; for example, moving or adding an electrical outlet requires a permit.
