Ken Hinton- City of Warren Building Code Enforcement

Ken Hinton, from the City of Warren Building Code Enforcement, came and spoke to the club. The department issues building permits and performs construction inspections under the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC) and International Construction Code (ICC) for the City of Warren.

Building permits are required for most projects such as new homes, additions, alterations, basement remodeling, sunrooms, swimming pools, spas/hot tubs, decks, and accessory buildings larger than 150 square feet. Permits run between $150-$200.

Projects such as minor repairs of a non-structural nature, painting, carpeting, door and window replacement, and roofing do not require a building permit. Some projects such as small accessory buildings and fences require only a zoning permit. It is recommended that the Building Code Department be consulted to confirm whether a permit is required for any planned projects.
