Why get a permit?

Your home or business is a major investment. If your construction project does not comply with the current codes adopted by the City of Eagle, the value of your investment could be reduced. Property insurers may not cover work completed without permits and inspections. And most importantly, SAFETY. The permit allows the code officials to protect the public through and inspection process to reduce potential hazards of unsafe construction and ensuring public health, safety and welfare. By following these guidelines, the project will meet minimum standards for safety and will be less likely to cause injury to you, your family, or future owners.
