Notice to Municipalities & Electrical Contractors
The Town of Rochester requires permits for indoor and outdoor structural or major changes to the living area of your home.  The permit process ensures that minimum safety standards are met and that construction meets local zoning requirements. Building codes are standardized, but each building department has their own specific regulations and procedures. Make sure you understand local regulations before proceeding with a major improvement project. If you have questions you can contact our office during business hours. We are happy to help.
