Everything You Need to Know About Garage Permits, Plans, & Building Codes
Getting Your Building Permit for a New Garage in Milwaukee
Before construction starts, you need a new garage building permit to ensure compliance with garage building codes for your city. Milwaukee homeowners can find permit information and applications on the City of Milwaukee website, as well as numbers to call with further questions.
Each county, city, and town has its own set of requirements and new garage building codes, and a quick online search for garage building codes + city will lead you to your municipality’s website or the best local resource for obtaining a garage building permit. City government websites also provide contact information for building inspectors so you can find out how big you can build, and how close to the property lines your garage can go.
Noticed any new garages built in your area recently? Neighbors may have helpful tips about the garage building code and permit approval process in your neighborhood. Another time-saving option is hiring a professional permit service to handle the paperwork for you. Permit service companies can make the permit application process simpler and less frustrating so you can spend more time fine-tuning your garage design—you know, the fun part!
