This include all buildings such as garages, sheds, pool houses, and the like that are accessory to a detached one- or two-family home (Group R-5). Stripping the roof down to existing sheathing or putting on a second layer of roof covering does NOT require a permit. Townhouses and condos will require roof permits. Replacing sheathing will always require a permit.
In all occupancies, no permit is required for the replacement of any part of a deck, porch or stoop that does not provide support to a building or structure.

“At American Water, we take water quality and safety very seriously. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and state drinking water programs set water quality standards designed to protect public health and American Water treats your water to meet or surpass these standards, including those set for chromium. The USEPA does not have specific drinking water regulations for chromium-6, only total chromium, which includes consideration of the health effects due to chromium-6. American Water routinely tests its water supply for total chromium and all results have been in compliance with the USEPA standards. We also voluntarily sample for chromium-6 in accordance with USEPA guidance. American Water is supporting national research through the Water Research Foundation to better monitor and treat for chromium-6. The USEPA is also conducting a rigorous and comprehensive review of health effects of chromium-6. Our water quality experts are closely following this research and if necessary, will be ready to implement changes in our testing and treatment. Water quality results on chrome-6 and other parameters can be found on American Water’s website http://amwater.com/water-quality-and-stewardship/payment-locations.html . Enter your zip code or city/state to get information on your specific water quality. There you will find the annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) and a basic water quality summary with links to additional information on chrome-6.”
