HANOVER - The Hanover Building Inspector's Office reminds residents to obtain building permits.
The signs of spring are upon us and residents are turning their attention to their home improvement projects. The Building Inspector's office at the Town of Hanover reminds all residents and contractors that permits are required for many home improvement projects.
This year as you get ready to build a new deck, plan a new home addition, install a pool, build a garage or replace that leaking roof, stop in or call your building inspector. The inspector is available to work with you, explain what does and does not require a building permit and help you make sure your project goes smoothly and that your construction is safe and up to code.
