Chicago, IL Demolition Questions Answered

When is a demolition permit needed?

According to the city of Chicago's Building Code, a building permit is necessary for the following construction and demolition projects:

  • Home additions, remodels, and demolition
  • Deck building, demolition, and replacement
  • Commercial structure demolition
  • Removal or installation of fencing over 5 feet tall
  • Driveway, dormers, and masonry replacement
  • Hot water heater installation and replacement
  • Roof and siding replacement
  • New construction of buildings and structures
  • Furnace replacement
  • Security system installation
  • Conversion and deconversion of units
  • Any ventilation system work

Will I need to get a permit or will my contractor get it for me?

It depends on the contractor. Oftentimes, your contractor will handle the permitting process for you, but this isn’t always the case. Always discuss with each contractor you speak to whether or not you will need to get the permit(s) yourself.

For many people, hiring a contractor who handles the permitting process is preferred to being responsible for getting the permit yourself as it can be a complicated process at times.
