Building Permits & Handouts

**ROOFING AND SIDING: Permits are required to replace roofing and siding damaged by hail. Please scroll to the bottom of this page for more information and a permit application.**

The Building Services Division reviews and provides approval of all construction projects, including new residential homes, commercial buildings, additions, remodels, and changes of use. For permit costs, see the fee schedule and valuation guide.

All phases of construction are inspected by one of our combination inspectors who check for compliance with local Codes. They confirm building structure, fire and life safety provisions, building accessibility, energy conservation, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems, zoning setbacks, and surface water drainage. See the Inspections page for a list of required inspections.

Below is a number of handouts to provide you with the required code information that you will need to plan your project as well as submission information. If you do not see a handout you are looking for or need more information please feel free to call the Building Division at 319-743-6330 or email us by filing out our form.
