IMPACT WINDOWS PERMITING
The Florida Building Code stipulates that building permits are required for replacement of windows and sliding glass doors, as well as screen enclosures, storage sheds and carports of canvas or metal. Working without a permit is illegal and can result in fines, causing problems when you want to sell your house. Only licensed contractors or homeowners (acting as owner-builders) may obtain a permit to perform the job.

TYPICAL REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN A PERMIT FOR INSTALLING WINDOWS AND DOORS

Most municipalities require more or less the same type of information to issue a permit for replacing windows and doors. The City of Coral Gables, for example, requires the following information in order to process and approve a building permit for replacing windows and doors:

HOW CAN YOU OBTAIN A PERMIT?

You don't have to worry about the hassle of obtaning a building permit. Astor Construction is a licensed general contractor of the State of Florida and will obtain the permit for you if you agree to do so in our quote. We have our structural engineers who will make all the necessary drawings and wind-load calculations to submit a complete application to the corresponding municipality.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO OBTAIN A PERMIT?

The turn-around time to pull a permit varies significantly from municipality to municipality. Once we submit the necessary paperwork, it takes us between 2 to 6 weeks to obtain a building permit approved. Some times, the process can take longer if permit reviewers have comments about a drastic change in style between the existing windows and the proposed new windows. Each municipality has its own turn-around time and its specific workflow processs.
