Building Code Inspection

The City of Warren has been appointed by the Board of Supervisors for their building code inspection services. Building permits are required for most projects, including such things as new homes, additions, sunrooms, swimming pools, decks, and accessory building larger than 150 square feet. Non-structural minor repairs such as painting, carpeting, door and window replacement, and roofing do not require a building permit. It is recommended that the Building Code Department be consulted to confirm whether a permit is required for any planned projects.
