Definitely. ALL work is done with permits. You should ALWAYS do your construction work with a permit. Why? To make sure that the work is done right and to protect yourself. When you do work with a permit a third party (The inspector) will check the work that your contractor is doing and will only approve the work if done according to code. This way you can make sure that the work performed was done correctly. We always follow city and state codes to make sure our work is done right.
