You can contact the Town Building Inspector, Brian Wert, Monday – Friday, 7:30am – 9:00am at (715) 386-5410 to discuss obtaining a building permit.
Building permits are required for new structures, additions to existing structures, and remodeling that involves structural changes or repairs(i.e. Moving walls, adding bathroom, increasing room size), exits, changes in use (i.e. unfinished basement to finished basements, creating bedrooms).
Mechanical permits are required for furnace and air conditioner installation and replacement, electrical work (including electrical service upgrades) and plumbing repairs. Permits are “not” required for general maintenance and repairs. This includes siding, soffits and fascia, down spouts, painting, door and window replacement not involving a change in size, roofing, maintenance and repairs to plumbing appliances, furnaces, electrical equipment (i.e. changing light fixtures, switches, receptacles not involving new circuits or the extension of existing circuits etc.), replacement of plumbing faucets and fixtures “except” water heater replacement.
Most contractors are accustomed to pulling permits and having their work inspected. Many contractors want their work inspected upon completion. This makes certain nothing was over looked and all building codes as well as health and safety issues have been checked.
The property owner is ultimately responsible for code compliance. Usually code violations rear their ugly head when you have an insurance claim or are selling your property. Insurance adjusters, appraisers and pre purchase home inspectors usually will find substandard work that could hold up the sale of your property or getting a loan or collecting an insurance claim. Many times questionnaires from insurance companies or the property condition report required for the sale of your property will state “are there any code violations, written orders or work completed without the proper permits and inspections on this property”. Failure to answer them correctly could result in legal action which could be costly.
