PermitUsNow Stands in the Gap with Permitting Tips for Homeowners Sustaining Damage from Hurricane Nicholas

HOUSTON, Texas (September 14, 2021) – PermitUsNow, a construction industry award winning permit expediting firm serving residential and commercial clients in Texas and across the US, today released 5 Things to Know About When to Pull a Building Permit after Home Damaged from Hurricane Nicholas. This general guide is designed to provide homeowners with practical tips to help when starting to make repairs or rebuilding their homes.

“We live in Houston and work across the Texas Gulf Coast; and it is important to us to help our neighbors to recover quickly after Hurricane Nicholas. We know that permitting is confusing to a lot of people and we’re here to answer any questions.” Moruf Jimoh, AAIA, Technical Manager of PermitUsNow

Moruf with other PermitUsNow team members are managing the 1.844PERMIT.4 company hotline to respond to homeowner inquiries. Also, homeowners along the Texas Gulf Coast can visit to review tips on when a building permit is required after incurring damage to residential property and when permits are not required.

In addition, we know from experience that contractors rush in to assist homeowners after hurricanes; and PermitUsNow encourages homeowners to verify if trade contractors are licensed to work in Texas. For electricians and mechanical (HVAC) contractors, homeowners can visit to check licenses and to minimize any chance of being exploited.

“Rebuilding a home damaged from a hurricane can be tough, but it is especially challenging while the pandemic continues, and homeowners are being squeezed financially. So, for us, providing simple tips on when a permit is required is one way we can help.” Helen Callier, President of PermitUsNow
