Building Permits - Residential

Woodbury uses a combination permit. Separate permits will only be required on jobs where there is no related combination Building Permit. Building Permits are required for many building projects, including:

  • Additions
  • Deck
  • Demolition
  • Finished basement
  • New construction
  • Pools
  • Porch
  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Structural changes
  • Window replacement

Contractors must have a current state license on file with the city. The Consumer's Guide to Hiring a Residential Building Contractor explains how to select a contractor, and red flags to be aware of.

If MN licensed residential contractor, remodeler or roofer and not lead certified and the dwelling was built before 1978, complete the Lead Supplement Form (PDF).
