Floor Covering Works: What You Need to Know

In Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, enhancing the beauty and comfort of your living space can be achieved without bureaucratic hassle for certain works. Fortunately, for minor aesthetic modifications such as changing the floor covering, whether it's carpet or wooden flooring, no permit is required. This ease also extends to other improvements like painting walls, replacing cabinets, countertops, a sink, or a bathtub.

When is a Permit Required?

However, it's crucial to note that for more significant renovations, a permit becomes essential. If your renovation projects affect the foundations of your home, firebreak separations, alter the structure of the dwelling, or increase the floor area, obtaining a permit is mandatory.
