Tool Kits

Most construction in New York City requires approval and permits from the Department of Buildings. Work that does not require a permit is typically cosmetic, like:

  • Painting
  • Plastering
  • Plumbing Fixture Replacement
  • Cabinet Installation
  • Non-structural Roof Repair

Owners considering performing work on their home should consult a licensed Professional Engineer or Registered Architect to assess whether a permit is required. Before hiring a professional to work on your home, owners should make sure that the individual holds a valid license (if necessary).
