In addition to new houses and businesses, other examples of projects that require a permit are basement finishing / remodeling, decks or additions, garages / sheds, pools and any mechanical / structural changes.

General, HVAC (heating, venting and air conditioning) and plumbing contractors are required to have State of Wisconsin license / credentials.
