Wildfire damage and recovery resources

The Building Codes Division is committed to helping Oregonians rebuild after the catastrophic wildfires across our state. This page contains information and resources, and will be updated as more information becomes available.

Permit requirements for residential damage recovery

Many basic recovery activities do not require a structural permit. To expedite the permit process and avoid unnecessary filings, here is some helpful building permit information.

Manufactured homes replacement and repairs

There are some things specific to manufactured dwellings you may not know. Access important information before you purchase a new or used manufactured dwelling, or start repairs.

Manufactured home ownership document retrieval

Manufactured home ownership documents can be downloaded from the Oregon Manufactured Home Ownership Document System (MHODS) or emailed to you from the division. Follow the Manufactured Home Document Retrieval Instructions.

Hiring a contractor?

Nearly all home improvements performed by a contractor require a contractor’s licenses.

If you are hiring a contractor, verify that they have the required Construction Contractors Board (CCB) and Building Codes Division (BCD) licenses before they begin the work.

For electrical or plumbing work, contractors are required to have a CCB license and the appropriate BCD electrical or plumbing contractor’s license.

For installing and repairing a manufactured dwelling, contractors are required to have a CCB license and a BCD Manufactured Dwelling Installer (MDI) license.
