All electric, mechanical, and plumbing work must have permits pulled by a State licensed, City registered contractor. Homeowners cannot pull these permits. However, homeowners can pull permits for fences, roof work, and other small jobs. A short list of contractors who are licensed and registered in the City already is located in the Development Services folder of the Document Center. When in doubt, call (210) 659-0333 ext 723.

Yes. Fence repair or replacement does require a permit and an inspection. Bring a copy of your site plan with you when obtaining the permit--hand drawn site plans will suffice. Cost of a fence permit is $85 and must be obtained before the work is begun. Homeowners can pull their own fence permits.
