Permit to replace sub-floor


Hello,

I have tried to contact my county office email and phone messages regarding this but no luck.

Do I need a permit to replace old plank sub-floor in my bathroom with plywood?

How 'bout sistering joists if needed?

I'm in Marin County, California

thanks!

No good answer---I would not need one---we need a Marin county person to answer that--

well it's promising that two of you don't have to. However, CA loves to make us pay so I'm not holding my breath yet.

I would think if your just changing out the sub floor your gtg but you also mention the joists and sistering. I do not know the answer, but I'm sure if you tell the building dept about both correction they would want to inspect it and require a permit. They may very well require eng also.

Hopefully someone in the area who knows can shed some light...or you reach someone in the BD there and get the info needed.
