Hail Damage Building Permits. The Building Inspection Department reminds citizens that any contractor who performs siding, roofing, window and door replacement work shall obtain a permit and be properly credentialed as required by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services. For a single or two-family dwelling the contractor shall possess both a State of Wisconsin Dwelling Contractor Credential and a State of Wisconsin Dwelling Contractor Qualifier Credential.
The state credential ensures the contractor is bonded and insured as required under S.101.654(2); it does not address competency.
It is suggested that you contact the Better Business Bureau at 1-800-273-1002 or www.wisconsin.bbb.org or Consumer Protection at 1-800-422-7128 or datcp.wi.gov
if you have any questions regarding a contractor’s qualifications.
A property owner performing the work his or herself to a single or two-family dwelling, that is owner occupied, will require a building permit only.
Those seeking additional information about contractor and permit requirements are encouraged to contact the Building Inspection Department at (920) 686-6940.
