Siding or Window Replacement Permitting Process in The Chicago Area

When you’re planning a window or siding replacement project, there are a number of steps to take in the process. From choosing your replacement materials to hiring the right contractor, all of these seemingly small decisions will play a part in the success of your project. However, make sure you don’t overlook one of the most important parts of the renovation process: permitting.

When you hire the Bak Brothers team, we’ll take care of all the permitting for you so you can have an easy and low-stress experience. To learn more, ask us about our permitting processes or to talk to one of our exterior renovation experts, please call us at (847) 485-1033 or contact us online

All About Permitting

Each state, city, and municipality has different permitting requirements when it comes to residential home renovations. As a homeowner, it can be confusing to figure out exactly what you need in terms of a permit when you are planning a renovation project. 

The Bak Brothers team is here for you. 

Thanks to our decades of experience renovating local homes, we know the ins and outs of permitting regulations not only here in Northbrook, but in all of our service areas. When you hire our team, you can have peace of mind that no permit-related tasks will fall through the cracks. 

Why Permits Are Important

Unfortunately, some homeowners tend to think that getting a permit for their renovation project isn’t really that important. We can assure you that it is! Securing the proper permit can help to ensure the following:

  • That your home is protected from the elements
  • That your project will be completed safely
  • That the end result of your project will be safe and secure
  • That your property value will be protected
  • That it will be easier to sell your home, as you can prove that renovations were done to code

Simply put, skipping the permitting process is just not worth it. 

Risks of Not Getting the Proper Permit

When you hire the Bak Brothers team for your project, we will not move forward until we take the proper steps to secure your permit. But, if you’re considering working with another contractor or you want to attempt a DIY remodel, here’s a closer look at the risks of not getting the right permit for your project. 

  • If code enforcement officials find out that your project wasn’t permitted, you may be subject to fines
  • If you go to sell your house, a home inspector may raise concerns about the work done on your home, which could impact the sale
  • You may have to pay more money to get unpermitted work fixed down the line

Permitting FAQs

How do you secure the right permits?

The process varies based on your local municipal government office and the specifics of your project. As our team is familiar with the various permitting processes in our service area, we’ll know what to do for each of our customers. 

Do all renovation projects require a permit?

No. Smaller projects like installing new countertops or painting your home’s interior don’t require permits. They’re generally only needed for large-scale projects that require significant updates to your home.
