Understanding Renovation Rules

In the South-West borough of Montreal, carrying out your renovation projects is subject to specific rules. At Plancher Deluxe, we aim to provide you with detailed information to facilitate your procedures.

Work Without a Permit: When Is It Possible?

Fortunately, for many aesthetic and minor works, obtaining a permit is not necessary. Here's what you can do without a permit:

  • Changing floor coverings: Whether you want to install new carpeting or a wooden floor, no permit is required for these changes.
  • Painting and wall renovation: Refreshing your walls with paint or wallpaper does not require administrative steps.
  • Replacing cabinets and countertops: Updating your kitchen or bathroom by changing cabinets or countertops is also permitted without formalities.
  • Installing a new sink or bath: Revitalizing your bathroom with new equipment does not require a permit.

Situations Requiring a Permit

However, for more significant works, a permit becomes essential. Here are some examples:

  • Works affecting the foundations: Any project that touches the basic structure of your home.
  • Structural modifications: If you plan to modify the load-bearing structure of your dwelling, a permit is required.
  • Expanding the floor area: Extending your living space requires official authorization.

Your Responsibility as an Owner

It is important to emphasize that, as an owner, you are responsible for ensuring that your works comply with current regulations. This includes obtaining necessary agreements from your neighbors, where applicable. At Plancher Deluxe, although we cannot obtain permits on your behalf (unless specified in the contract), we are always available to offer our support and advice at every stage of your project.
