Sparks Construction LLC discusses, “When you need a building permit” for your next remodeling project

The company owner, Brian Sparks was quoted as saying, “Whether you are planning on doing your next remodeling project yourself or you are hiring a professional contractor, having the right permits is a must. Knowing what you can do, what you must do and what you need to do to comply with your area’s zoning regulations gives a ‘do it yourself person’ the confidence to move forward with a project. Our professionals at Sparks Construction LLC inform our clients what permits will be needed for their projects and then we work with the local municipality to get the necessary inspections and permits issued.”
