The Town of Argyle and all other cities/towns across the country use the building permit process to verify that construction or development will comply with building codes and Town development standards. The building codes and development standards are adopted by the Town Council and become the law of the Town. The development projects are also inspected to ensure compliance.
Below are examples of projects that require a permit. This is not a comprehensive list. Please contact us at 940-464-7273 for specific permitting questions.
Homeowners may do all the work themselves if they so wish. A homeowner is not required to register with the Town as a contractor, however, they must still comply with all applicable codes. Homeowners wanting to complete plumbing, electrical, or mechanical work will still need to be licensed for such work by the appropriate state agency. Homeowners should carefully consider the complexity of a project when considering whether or not to hire a contractor.
The Town of Argyle requires that a contractor be registered as a business in order to obtain permits. The registration does not necessarily mean that a contractor is a reputable businessperson. Homeowners should always check references before hiring a contractor. Homeowners should always require their contractors to obtain the proper permits and inspections. Homeowners may choose to pay a contractor based upon approval of Town inspections. Individuals or business entities wanting to register as a contractor with the community development department, must provide a complete contractor registration application, a valid trade license, or driver’s license if not a trade, and a certificate of insurance with a minimum coverage of $500,000.
Basically, inspections are required before any part of the construction may be covered up and at the completion of the project. Work such as plumbing, electrical, mechanical work, framing, and irrigation must be inspected before concealing.
A list of inspections for one and two-family dwellings is provided below:
