Can I do my own work?
In accordance with state codes and local ordinances, most installations will need to be done by State of Wisconsin licensed contractors. In certain cases, people who own and occupy a 1 or 2 family dwelling may be permitted to do their own work. All the work must be done to code and while the inspectors can answer code-related questions you may have, they cannot help design the project for you.
