Building Information, Permits & Forms

 

For your protection, permits are required before any home construction or improvements can be done.  Permits are issued to the person who will physically perform the work for which the permit is sought.  Permits are obtained at the Building Department from 8:00 A.M.- 3:30 P.M., Monday through Friday.  Check with the department before beginning any construction, electrical, plumbing, heating or air conditioning work. Permits are also required for garage sales and satellite dishes.

 

Upon request and for informational purposes only, the Building Department can provide homeowners with a list of contractors who have met the registration requirements for the City of South Euclid, and are licensed, bonded and insured to work in the city. Although neither the Building Department nor the City recommends contractors, the Registered Contractors list can be a great help to the homeowner in choosing a licensed contractor for their project

 

13 Steps to Hiring a Contractor

 

- Seek a referral from someone you know who is happy with his or her contractor's work.

- Solicit bids from at least three contractors

- Be wary of proposals that are much lower than any other proposals.

- Contact the Better Business Bureau to check out any contractors that submit bids.

- Insist on a written contract that outlines your entire agreement, including starting and completion dates.

- Have an attorney review any documents before you sign them, including contracts, warranties, and plans.

- Make sure there are no blank spaces on anything you sign.

- Insist upon a written warranty on all materials and work.

- Get all building permits and variances before starting the project - and identify the contractor on the

     applications.

- Inspect all work before signing a completion certificate.

- Withhold final payment until the entire project is finished and inspected.

- Get a contractor's affidavit that all subcontractors and material suppliers have been paid before making

     final payment.

- Report my misrepresentations, shoddy work, failure to honor contracts, unlicensed contractors, or
    other problems to the appropriate licensing board.
