How to apply for a building permit
Obtaining a building permit is a New York State requirement, not a local ordinance.
Permits are not required for:
Resurfacing an existing driveway without any expansion / extension from the existing configuration in connection with a 1 or 2-family dwelling
Wood or vinyl siding of a 1 or 2-family, where the siding is simply applied to an existing exterior, without removal or replacement of the sheathing or other wall structure
Emergency roof repairs of a 1 or 2 family of less than 100 square feet and no sheathing replacement excluding repairs in the Historical district
Painting a house unless you are located in the Historical district
For technical bulletins and code interpretations for the NYS Building Code, please visit the
NYS Department of State, Division of Code Enforcement and Administration webpage
