Do you need a permit for that job?


If you are considering remodeling your home or business, adding an arbor or fence to your yard or a new roof or retaining wall, be sure you or your contractor applies for a building permit from the City of Rockwall first.

Before starting the job, call (972) 771-7709
for information about permit requirements. To request an inspection of the project, call (972) 771-7760. Inspectors are in the office from 8-9 a.m. and 4-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The inspection request line is available 24 hours a day. Calls received after 7:30 a.m. will be scheduled for the next working day.

Plumbing, mechanical or electrical work; irrigation systems, swimming pools or hot tubs; signs and banners; accessory buildings or demolitions; and driveways, patios, patio covers and decks also require building permits.

“Building codes are adopted and inspections completed to address safety issues and hopefully to avoid problems for our residents in the future,” Mr. Widmer, Building Official, noted.
