Renovation Shaking Hands

Why Do I Need A Building Permit?

Why do I need a Building Permit? Because it is required by law.

Lately, there has been a spike in renovation and building work being undertaken without the proper council permit approvals in place. This is particularly prevalent in the re-roofing industry as many people are unaware of their responsibilities in this regard and some roofing companies take advantage of this fact to avoid what they see as a time-consuming inconvenience.

However not having the appropriate Planning and Building permits in place prior to replacing your roof can be a costly exercise with retrospective approvals being more expensive and time-consuming than just getting all your ducks in a row at the beginning of the project.

It can seem like a daunting or confusing prospect. When is Planning approval required? When is Building approval required? When are both required? Are there colour restrictions in my suburb? What if my house is in a Heritage Protection Zone? How can I source architectural drawings of my home? How do I find a Structural Engineer to design my tie downs? If you’re going to re-roof it’s worth doing it legally – an investment such as a new roof is worth protecting by having all aspects approved by your local Permit Authority, especially if you want to sell your property in the future.

The Roof & Wall Doctor will not only explain the approvals process to you, we will complete it for you. Prior to that first sheet of Australian made steel being laid you will have the absolute security of knowing every aspect of your job is legal and approved by your local council.
