How Do I ...

Building Safety

Do I need a permit to side my house or put in new windows?

No permit is required for siding a home.   When a window is installed in the existing window framework, then a permit is not required.  A permit is required for new windows, if the opening is enlarged or reduced.   If an existing room is remodeled to a bedroom or a basement is finished, then a permit is required due to meet the code requirement for emergency egress.  Plans will need to be submitted.
