Increase your Manteca real estate's appeal on the market by making an addition to the property

One of the many things you can do to potentially increase the allure of your Manteca, CA real estate is to make an addition like a new bedroom, deck or porch. In Manteca, you'll need to acquire the proper permit for this from the Community Development Department.

In addition to general requirements covering all remodeling tasks, Manteca requires that you uphold specific standards for your residential addition. This is also the case if you're adding a fence, retaining wall, swimming pool, detached garage or storage shed.

For example, if you're building an attached patio, you'll need to make sure that the addition covers no more than 40 to 45 percent of the entire property's area. Other specifics include the need for smoke detectors connected to the house's wiring and high-efficacy lighting in bedrooms.

Full listings of these exact specifications and requirements are available on the Community Development Department's website. Read these before completing your permit application and submitting it with site plans, floor plans, plumbing and electrical wiring details and all other required documents.
