Do I need a permit to finish my basement?

Monday, December 17th, 2012 by Brad Wazlavek


  One of the biggest questions we get here for basement finishing projects is, “do I need to get a permit?” We have found that anywhere in Delaware you will need a building permit for basement finishing that is approved by the county (and sometimes the township, too). At DryZone, we like to use the phrase “soup to nuts.” For those of you not familiar with the term, it means that we handle every aspect of the project from start to finish. This means that the homeowner will never have to worry about getting blueprints, permits, scheduling inspections, electrical work, or any other little thing you can think of. Once you sign on with DryZone to install your new finished space you can just sit back and watch the magic happen. I’m not going to tell you that you sign and the next day we can begin work, that would be silly. It takes time to get things in order, but we pride ourselves on keeping the customer happy and we inform them every step of the way. Sometimes we run into a snag, for instance when we don’t realize a house is within the city limits. This just means that we will need approval from the county as well as the town to begin work. Not to worry, we take care of that too. There are several things that set DryZone apart from other contractors, one of the biggest is that we are fully licensed and insured. We would never risk starting a project that could put us in hot water just to skip getting a permit. So when you are choosing your contractor to finish your basement, make sure that they will take care of you in EVERY facet of the project. For us, a stress free homeowner is a happy homeowner.
