Santa Clara Remodeling
If you live in Santa Clara, you’re one of 120,000 people who reside in the Mission City. Santa Clara has a rich history. Established in 1851, and incorporated as a state-chartered city in 1862, Santa Clara is one of the oldest cities in California. Santa Clara de Asis Mission was founded in 1777 by Father Junipero Serra; it’s now part of Santa Clara University campus. Transforming from its roots from fruit orchards, Santa Clara is now a high-tech hub with many of Silicon Valley’s most famous startups, from Applied Materials to WebEx. And with the new Levi Stadium and other redevelopment projects, Santa Clara continues to grow.
If you’re looking to build or remodel your Santa Clara home, a great resource is the city’s Planning Division website. It provides useful information about relevant building codes and other resources that you might need. Typically permits are required for all new construction, remodeling projects or home additions, including the following:
- Carports and garages
- Room additions
- Interior alterations
- Window changes
We’ve found that the City of Santa Clara is friendly to home remodels. Even so, as with many city building departments, your building plans need to accurately reflect all aspects of your remodeling project. When working through the Santa Clara’s planning and permitting process, be sure to include as much information as possible. Here are a few examples:
- If you are enlarging a door or room opening, you need to indicate the size of the header.
- For any electrical alterations, you need to detail the location of all outlets and lights.
- Even for small projects, like a kitchen remodel, it is important to ensure that “as built” drawings reflect the changes to the house before and after work is completed.
