If you are planning any new home improvements, be sure to contact the Permits/Inspections Department to obtain a building permit. These are required for:
Building or installing patios, decks or patio covers; chimneys; garages; ventilation, heating or air-conditioning supply or exhaust systems; swimming pools; and tool or storage sheds.
Adding or changing rooms, dormers, windows or wall openings, circuits or other parts of electrical systems; walls to a porch; and garages to a livable area.
Replacing or repairing roofing, termite damage, porches, existing stone, brick or concrete.
Demolishing any structure or part of a structure affecting a building on your property.
A building permit ensures that work is done in compliance with the International Building Code and Code of the Town of Middletown and ensures that each phase of work is inspected by the town code official. Contractors hired to perform building or reconstruction work must be licensed with the town.
Inspections - Each non-occupant owner of a residence who rents or leases to another person is required to have the property inspected prior to an occupancy.
