When it comes to staying compliant with building codes, be sure to contact your local zoning board or other office that handles building permits in your area. In most cases, you will need a metal building permit and most counties require the home owner to get their own permit. Lear Metal Carports will gladly provide our customer with generic plans, that the permitting office may require in order to issue a building permit. We, at Lear Metal Carports, do not pull permits for customers. If the permitting office requires site specific plans, or wet seal drawings we can also provide those to you at an additional cost. Each permit office has different requirements and we will do our best to assist you every step of the way.
