How much will a permit cost?

The cost associated with obtaining a permit depends on the department the permit is coming from and the type of job you are looking to have done. For further details, the city of Arlington has a fee schedule available.

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.
