Both Residential and Commercial demolition work will require a permit. If you are looking to demolish a primary structure, porch, garage or building, this page can provide you with information on how to obtain a permit.
Interior demolition permits will be applied for as part of your building permit application. Please see the "Questions?" section below for more information.
