Red Deer Building Permits: Do I Need Permission to Schedule a Home Renovation?

Residential property owners or their contractors must submit a Red Deer building permit application for renovations and basement developments that meet certain criteria. If your home renovation requires a building or development permit, we’ll handle everything on your behalf to make the process run as smoothly as possible. If you’re eager to renovate your home this spring, let us know ASAP to avoid long permit approval wait times.

You will only need a development permit if you are:

1.      Changing the location of windows and doors or adding new ones

You will need a building permit if you are:

1.      Renovating your home

2.      Finishing your basement

3.      Adding, moving or removing interior walls

4.      Changing window sizes

5.      Replacing kitchen cupboards

Small renovation projects may not require a Red Deer County building permit. The following renovation projects can be completed without permission:

1.      Painting the walls

2.      Replacing flooring

3.      Replacing counter tops

4.      Replacing shingles or siding

Red Deer building permit fees ultimately depend on the size and value of the construction. The minimum fee is $105 (as of 2023). City of Red Deer commercial building permits cost $9.02 per $1,000-worth of construction costs. Residential permit fees are charged according to square metreage of your main and upper floor areas, basement, garage, deck or apartments.
