Building Permits

Online Permit Application (EZ Trade Permits Only)

Anyone, including owners and contractors, may use the EZ Trades website to apply for permits. Permit types available online are limited to those that do not require detailed reviews or submission of plans and/or technical documents. 

Simple documents, sketches or photos may be uploaded with your application if needed to better describe the work. 


Owners performing or supervising the work and applying for their own permits are required to acknowledge and be aware of the contractor licensing laws and are responsible to verify proper licensing of any subcontractors that may be hired for the project. 

Contractors will need to provide their state contractors license number and Roanoke County Business License number unless they have been exempted from obtaining a local business license by the Commissioner of the Revenue.
