All new construction and any structural modifications made to an existing structure require a building permit. A permit is also required for any accessory structure over 200 square feet, and in all cases the accessory structure must meet all Zoning Ordinance requirements and setbacks. Also, a permit is required for any electrical, plumbing, or heating work.
All work for which a permit is required must be inspected and approved by Waterford Township Inspectors.
Re-shingling a roof, replacing windows, or vinyl siding are considered maintenance and do not require a permit.
Any deck that is built on posts requires a permit but any poured patio or deck platform sitting on the ground does not require a permit.
Fences do not require permits, but all Zoning Ordinance requirements must be met.
