Home Rehabilitation Resources

Are you thinking about fixing up or remodeling your home? Or do you need help making necessary repairs to keep your house safe and comfortable? There are many helpful housing resources available to Oakdale homeowners. Some programs are managed by the City, while others are available through partner organizations.

If you are planning to hire a contractor to work on your home, first read through the Home Building and Remodeling Handbook produced by the Minnesota Attorney General’s office. The handbook will help you to be an informed consumer. The handbook provides guidelines for selecting a contractor and writing a home improvement contract, and highlights Minnesota’s mechanic’s lien law.

Remember to Get a Building Permit!

If you are considering a home improvement project, your first step should be contacting the Building Inspections Department by calling 651-739-5150, visiting Oakdale Building Inspection website or reading When is a Building Permit Required (PDF).
