The Building Code

Building codes have evolved over many years as a way to insure that construction projects yield safe and reliable structures. The State Building Code recognizes the International Code Council as the source of standards for construction projects in Iowa.

Building Department Permits

Building Permits are required for all construction in Boone except for replacement of small sections of non-critical items. Permits are not required for re-roofing (shingling), siding, windows and any structure less than 120 Square feet. Structures less than 120 Square Feet are still required to meet all applicable setbacks for the zoning district. Licensed contractors are required to pull permits for Electrical, Mechanical and Plumbing work they perform. Building code standards are the same for contractors and homeowners alike.
