Building Department


Please remember that most projects require building permits and inspections to comply with Zoning and Building Codes. If there is any doubt, please contact the Building Department to find out if you need a permit for your project and we will help you through the process. Call (630) 257-1580 for more information.


The Village has seen an increase in resident complaints from hiring unqualified contractors to perform home repairs or services. Before you hire a contractor, please check with the Lemont Building Department or Code Enforcement to make sure the contractor is licensed, bonded and insured. If they are not, let them know that to do any work in the Village they must be licensed. It is also recommended to check the Better Business Bureau and other information sites for contractor feedback and recommendations. Protect your investment from unqualified and unlicensed contractors.

Contractors caught working without a license will be issued a citation and will not be allowed to continue work until licensing requirements have been met.

To register a complaint regarding contractor work or other code violations, please contact the Village Code Enforcement Officer at (630) 243-2704, or Report a Concern online.
