Patio Cover Permit Services
Updated: February 2023
Pricing includes planned proposals, obtaining the permit from local municipality, and ensuring compliance from local HOAs (if applicable).
Note: Depending on the dimensions of your project (normally 120 sq ft or less), a permit may not be necessary
California enforces minimum building standards when it comes to building any “permanent” structure. More often, you’ll need to consult with your local building and safety department to obtain the necessary permit(s) due to stricter regulations. Our pricing includes a fixed rate for handling of the application process (permit application, project plans, inspection) and your city’s application fees.
Because each city and county building and safety department work independently of one another, permit fees and enforcement can vary drastically from one city to the next. As an example, Moreno Valley’s Building and Safety Department’s Fee Schedule Documentation charges $615 for the first 300 sq ft of a non-enclosed patio cover and $128 for each additional 300 sq ft. This would change between city and county lines. For this reason, we recommend you check your city’s fees and charges page to get a batter sense of overall pricing.
