Business owners can now take advantage of a new expedited permit process to assist with repairs to storefronts. The Rebuild Permit is for repairs of commercial doors, windows, or other storefront façade elements. A rebuild permit application is available online and is open for submittal until the end of July.
Business owners are encouraged to apply now, as the work can be completed at a later time. This permit is available at no cost to business owners and does not require registration in the permit and development portal. More information can be found on the permit process page.
It is important to note that North Carolina General Statute 87-14 requires business owners to hire a licensed general contractor to repair damage valued at $30,000 or more.
