Are you planning to give your bathroom in Utah a makeover? If so, you may need to get a building permit. Whether or not you need one depends on the scope of the project. Generally, if your remodeling project involves increasing the square footage, adding or removing walls, adding doors or windows, or making any changes to the roofline, you will need to obtain a permit. Additionally, if you are making any modifications to major systems such as electrical, plumbing or HVAC systems, you will also need to get a permit.
On the other hand, smaller projects such as painting your house or installing new carpets or floors usually do not require a building permit. However, if you are adding more rooms to your house or constructing another level, you will likely need a permit. Even seemingly minor projects such as adding a new door or window or tearing down a wall may require a permit.
