Free Building Permits throughout city of Denver

The City is offering free building permits for many common home-improvement projects to single-family homes and duplexes. The free permits will be available until June 15 and valid for 180 days. Permits will be issued on the spot to citizens or their contractors.

The free building permits can be obtained between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the permit counter on the second floor of the Webb Municipal Building, 201 W. Colfax Ave.

This home renovation stimulas plan covers the following improvements to existing single-family homes and duplexes:

• Basic interior remodel (existing kitchen, bath or bedroom)
• Basement remodel
• Roof covering repair or replacement
• Wall insulation
• Replacement of water heaters
• Change out central heating and air
• Photo voltaic systems (Solar Panels)
• Stucco or siding home exteriors

This excludes complex projects that require detailed plan review such as new homes, additions, garages and new structures such as a gazebo. Projects requiring plan review for engineering and structural modifications are also excluded.

Building permit fees range from $20 to several thousand dollars, depending on the value of the project. The building permit fee is $20 for projects valued up to $500; the fee is $35 for projects valued between $500 and $2,000; and then the fee increases by $8 for each additional $1,000 of project value over $2,000.

Building permits offer important protections to homeowners. First, they require that inspections be performed to verify work was done correctly and follows building code standards. Permits also protect the resale of homes. For example, a sale may be held up because an improvement such as a basement remodel wasn’t done with the proper permits.
