As always, property owners are advised to obtain permits from Permit Sonoma before repairing or rebuilding flood-damaged structures. Building codes are minimum requirements for the construction of buildings. They regulate the design, construction, alteration, and maintenance of structures to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of building occupants. Building codes are an essential safety measure for communities.

If there was water damage to electrical, plumbing (including natural gas), and/or mechanical systems, you will be required to obtain permits. A permit is required for each individual trade, which includes electrical, plumbing, and/or mechanical. For replacement of pre-existing interior sheetrock, insulation, doors, and other structural repairs, you will also need a building permit.
