Proper Permits Needed Before Rebuilding

Flooded Home

Little Rock – Arkansans affected by the severe storms and flooding between May 21 and June 14 are advised to get proper permits when rebuilding their damaged property.

Every part of a building — from roofs, walls and siding to plumbing, electrical, septic systems, and heating/air conditioning systems — may require a permit before rebuilding. A permit may also be needed for demolition.

Permits protect owners, residents, communities and buildings by making sure repairs and/or construction meet current building codes, standards, floodplain ordinances and construction techniques. Permits also provide a permanent record of compliance with elevation and/or retrofitting requirements, which is valuable information when selling the structure or obtaining flood insurance coverage.      MORE
