Permitting / Contractor Question

1 Reply

I need to re-roof a property. It’s a small project. I had planned to do it myself, but learned I can’t do that on a property that is not my home.

I have a quote for all materials, dumpster, and the subcontractor ready to go. Now I need a contractor to pull a permit.

Can I ask to hire a contractor simply to pull the permit and let my crew do all the work or do I have to let them control the process?

(I’m more concerned that a permit is pulled for insurance or resale purposes than hiring a contractor for a warranty since I trust my crew.)

No most contractors will not pull a permit and let your guys do the work. Why because of insurance, did the work get done right. The contractor will have his name on it. Just have home owner pull the permit.
