Permits and Codes Some areas require permits whenever you are spending over a certain amount of money on any repairs or remodeling. Sometimes this figure is as low as $100. Check with your local municipalities to see if you need a permit. Usually only a small fee is required, and often this ordinance is not enforced.
Remember: A coat of fresh paint will not glue down a coat of old paint that's ready to crack and fall off. Paints are common coatings used on wood and provide the most protection.

Paints are used for aesthetic purposes, to protect the wood surface from weathering and to conceal certain defects.
