A construction permit is not needed for items such as wallpapering, painting or similar finish work. However, reviews may be required from other agencies; be sure to check before proceeding.
For plumbing, mechanical and electrical work, replacement or repair of fixtures (such as changing water faucets or replacing switches) does not normally require a permit. Replacing a water heater or adding a permanently wired light fixture does, however, require a permit.
