NOTICE

BY LAW, A STATE OF GEORGIA LICENSED CONTRACTOR MUST PULL ALL CONSTRUCTION PERMITS.  HOWEVER, A HOMEOWNER IS ALLOWED TO PULL A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT TO BUILD THEIR PERSONAL HOME EVERY 2 YEARS.  ALL OTHER PERMITS (ELECTRICAL, PLUMBING, GAS AND MECHANICAL) REQUIRE STATE OF GEORGIA LICENSED CONTRACTORS.  A HOMEOWNER MAY NOT PULL THEIR OWN ELECTRICAL, PLUMBING OR GAS PERMITS, AND ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO PULL MECHANICAL PERMITS IF THE UNIT BEING INSTALLED IS A PACKAGED HEATING AND AIR UNIT (ALSO KNOW AS “SELF-CONTAINED”).
