    "Thank you for the great work. The newly painted room looks fantastic. Tom notices everything so that if there is a chance I might want something additional I can have them do it. I feel very comfortable with the guys, and as usual your company came through, does what I need done, and does not disappoint me."

    You might not know this, but for most building projects in Cleveland Heights, you must obtain a building permit before you start work. Getting this permit can be an overwhelming experience, and piled on with hiring a contractor and getting the work done, it can all be a very stressful experience. Here is the basic information when it comes to obtaining a building permit in Cleveland Heights courtesy of The Cleveland Heights Patch.

    1. Cleveland Heights residents need building permits for most construction projects, including window replacement, electrical, plumbing and heating upgrades, concrete work and asphalt resurfacing. In addition, if residents want to build a deck or pool, they must have a permit. A permit is not necessary for minor repairs and painting, for example, but the city suggests homeowners call 216-291-4900 before beginning any work to make sure. A ton of useful information is also available on the city's website.

    2. Homeowners can pick up permit applications at City Hall during the specified permit hours, 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Or they can mail a request and include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Forms are not available online.

    3. Contractors must be registered with Cleveland Heights, and there is a contractor list provided on the city’s website. Residents can browse contractors by trade. Homeowners do not have to be registered to obtain a permit to complete repairs on their homes themselves if it is a single-family property. If it’s a rental home, landlords have to register or hire a city-registered contractor.

    4. The cost of obtaining a building permit varies. A permit fee schedule is available on the Cleveland Heights website.

    5. The City of Cleveland Heights has an extensive amount of information on building permits on its website. Forms, fee information, details about specific projects like plumbing installation, pool and hot tub requirements and more are available online.
