Homeowners, Business Owners, and Citizens of Cañon City
Spring and Summer have people getting ready to move forward with projects they have been wanting to accomplish. This could be building a shed, garage, addition, fence, pergola, or any other construction project.
When hiring a contractor to start your project be sure to ask the following questions.
Are you a licensed contractor with the City of Cañon City?
Can you show me proof of liability insurance?
Will this require a permit?
Who is going to obtain the permit - owner or contractor?
What type of inspections are required?
Who is going to call for the appropriate inspections?
The building department provides a list of licensed contractors on our website that is updated once a month. You can also check our online portal to see to review any permit information for a property and locate licensed contractors in our area.
If you are not sure whether your project needs a permit or if you have other questions, please feel free to contact the Building Department at (719) 276-5253.
