Residential permit applications
Contractors are required to have a valid license from a jurisdiction with an ICC equivalent exam, certificate of liability of insurance, workers compensation insurance (if applicable) and current registration with the Town of Castle Rock prior to applying for a building permit.
Visit eTrakiT for contractor registration and renewal information. Homeowners may act as their own contractor for residential additions, alterations or repairs.
