The type of permit required depends on the use of the space and what changes you plan to make. You can determine the required permit as well as get answers to frequently asked questions by using the Town of Kernersville Permit Guide and Frequently Asked Questions.

All plan reviews, permits, and inspection requests must be done through ViewPoint, including:

  • Building, Plumbing, Mechanical, and Electrical permits
