Do I need a permit?

Do I need a permit to have the floors and stairs in my house refinished?

No, unless there will be a dumpster that needs a permit to be on the street. Refinishing is like painting, basically.

This would be incorrect information. You need permits for lot's of things, like electric, plumbing, windows.

You DO NOT need a permit to refinish your floors or stairs though.
