What you Need to Know

Located in the Appalachian region of the Southern United States, West Virginia is the 10th smallest state by area and is the 38th ranked state in population. It is bordered by Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Just like any other state, West Virginia has its own set of rules and regulations when it comes to building. You’ll have to get all of the proper permits and licenses before you start your construction project. Take a look at our guide to start you on your way to a successful build.

Building permits

For most construction projects in West Virginia, you will need a building permit. That means any project that is being built, altering an existing structure, or demolishing a structure. It is important to get your building permit before you start any construction in the State of West Virginia.

On top of the basic building permit, there are other types of permits that you might need to get depending on your project. Some examples of other permits include:

  • Electrical permits
  • Plumbing permits
  • Mechanical permits
  • Grading permits
  • Demolition permits

Building permits are usually issued by the city where the property is. Each city will have a Building Permit office where you can find out more information on your specific city. Oftentimes, a specific city might have extra permits that you need. It is important to make sure you have everything you need before you begin working.

Contractor License

To do work on any job over $2,500, you must have a contractor’s license. In order to get a contractor license, you will have to take and pass the NASCLA exam as well as a business law exam. Contractors have to be licensed to ensure quality and safe work.

Soil Types

Before you begin construction, it is important to find out what kind of soil you are working on. The type of soil can help you decide which kinds of equipment to use for your project. There are a few types of soil in the State and they vary based on where you are. For example, if you are near the Ohio River, you will most likely find gravelly, sandy soil. Make sure you know what you are working on to maximize success.

Construction Equipment in West Virginia

You will need construction equipment for most projects you do. The size of your project and the type of soil are two key factors in deciding what kind of equipment you need. Common types of equipment include scissor lifts, manlifts, and forklifts. These will help you reach high in the air during your job. Some other kinds of equipment are for earthmoving including backhoes, excavators, rollers, and dozers. Whatever your project is, BigRentz can help with all of your construction equipment rental needs.
