We Need Your Help!

Jasper County wishes to remind you that permits are required when you add on or make changes to your home. The permit process allows them to inspect the work to ensure that your home remains structurally sound and safe for you, and to keep the records accurate for the Tax Assessor. Permits are required by both Turtle Cove and Jasper County for building or enlarging decks, porches, entrances, widening driveways, retaining walls, additions and other exterior changes and improvements. Jasper County permits may be necessary for interior work where electrical, HVAC, and/or plumbing is modified or added.

Jasper County has become aware that many home-owners have replaced their shingled roofs with metal roofs without obtaining a building permit. Notices are being sent to the homeowners that have been identified; but they are requesting that any other homeowner's, with non-permitted metal roofs, to contact them so it can be permitted and recorded.
