PermitUsNow Provides Building Permitting Tips for Residential Property Owners Impacted by Hurricane Ida

HOUSTON, Texas (August 30, 2021) – PermitUsNow, an industry recognized building permitting and expediting small business along the Texas Gulf Coast, has provided construction permitting tips to residential property owners impacted by Hurricane Ida in Louisiana. As natives and residents of Houston, Texas, PermitUsNow’s staff realizes the challenges in rebuilding after a hurricane and has stepped up to offer straight-forward tips to minimize frustrations often associated with permitting.

PermitUsNow team members drafted 5 Residential Building Permitting Tips After Suffering Damage from Hurricane Ida to give persons in Louisiana impacted with immediate advice to use when planning for home repairs and renovations. In the aftermath, most jurisdiction permitting staff will work diligently in responding to property owners’ questions about permitting, but the reality is that after Hurricane Ida combined with pandemic challenges, permitting staff will be swamped with calls and many may struggle to get back to work if their own homes have been damaged.

Generic industry data chart

Industry data show that homeowners make better decisions and are less likely to be ripped off by unscrupulous contractors when they have some insight on when a building permit is needed. This is another reason for PermitUsNow team providing helpful tips to homeowners.
