Even though it may be your property, the property is still one of the many concerns of the city, who want to ensure property safety for you and for the next set of residents in your home.
We, at Design Everest, understand that it may be your first time making additions or demolitions to your home. Do you want to hone your remodeling management skills? Below are important policies that pertain to house improvements and/or remodels in the City of Mountain View. In most cases, you will need a permit for your residential projects. There are simple permits, remodel permits, and demolition permits, described below. The departments within the City of Mountain View that would help you through the permit process include Planning, Building, Fire, Public Works, and Public Services.
You may use the online e-permit service for reroofing, masonry fireplace, shower and tub enclosures, sewer line & water repiping, water heater replacement, electrical service upgrade, and/or furnace replacement. However, e-permits are only for Single Family Homes & Duplexes, not Multi-Family and Commercial Buildings. Start your residential e-permit service here.
