It largely depends on the scope of the work. If you are replacing a small area of damaged shingles or repairing a leak, we do not require you to obtain a building permit. If you are replacing a whole section of roofing material or replacing your roof (re-roofing), a building permit is required. If you are unsure if you need a building permit, please contact our office before beginning work at 587-3550 ext. 2511.
What Insurances are Required?
NYS has very specific insurance requirements that must be met before the municipality may issue a building permit. Proof of insurance is required to be submitted along with the permit application whether a contractor is performing the work or the homeowner is performing the work themselves. Please visit the following link for more information about insurance requirements: Homeowners Insurance Requirements
Is a Design Review Required?
Please note that if you are located in an Architectural Review District or Historic Review District, changes to the exterior appearance of your home (including your roof) must be approved by the Design Review Commission. Please refer to the Architectural/Historic Design Review Application.
