Contractor Registration Information

For your convenience we are offering the issuance of over-the-counter permits via email for the following projects: Electric revisions/up-grades,  re-roof, reside, replacement permits (windows, A/C unit, furnace, water heater), and residential interior demolition.  Email a copy of the application form signed by the owner of the property, and copy of entrance permit or waiver from whomever maintains the road (township hwy or DuDOT) for the electric, roof, reside and interior demo applications.  A copy of the application signed by the owner and manufacturer cut sheets with U-Factor for windows, spec sheets for the air conditioner, furnace or water heater showing the UL or approved listing and for water heaters - a notarized plumber's Letter of Intent.  Just make sure that any contractors are current with their registrations with us also.  Email all documents to Our staff will be in touch with you through email with our cash bond paperwork and then emailing the permit card and other paperwork.

All General and Sub-Contractors performing work in Unincorporated DuPage County are required to be registered with the DuPage County Building Official prior to permit issuance and commencement of work. Plumbers, Irrigation & Fire Alarm Contractors do not pay a fee but are required to register with the County. If there are other trades with the registration, that trade(s) will be charged the registration fees that apply.

*Please note: if you are renewing your registration & your address, contact information or trades have not changed we no longer require you to fill out an application form.  A current Certificate of Insurance and payment is all that is necessary.  Insurance can be emailed to & payment can be made on-line with your CR#.  The link to pay is the bottom link to the left of your screen. 

**Please DO NOT make an online payment until you know your insurance is current with our office as we cannot process it until we have the new Certificate of Insurance.

All registrations shall be valid for a one year period from the date of registration. Registration is required before work is performed on any new projects. (Further registration details are available from the Building & Zoning  Department at: (630) 407-6700)

When changing contractor(s) once a permit has been issued we will require a letter from either the property owner or the general contractor on the job requesting you be added to the application - with that you can add your name

A Certificate of Insurance is required - Liability and Worker Compensation if applicable. ***It would be helpful if the certificate holder on the Certificate of Insurance stated c/o Building & Zoning Department under the County of DuPage***
