The cost of permit varies depending on the project. Most permits are based on a project valuation. The project valuation can be determined by the square footage of a new home or addition, or it could simply be based on the contractors construction estimate. As long as the project valuation takes into account the cost of materials and labor at the fair market value*, it can be used to calculate permit fees. We can always run an estimate for you if you need a close dollar amount.
* Fair market value: The valuation to be used in computing the plan review and permit fees will be the prevailing fair market value of all construction work for which the permit is issued, as well as all finish work, painting, roofing, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, elevators, fire extinguisher systems or any other permanent work or permanent equipment.
