Window / Exterior Door

Overview


A building permit is required when replacing, altering or changing windows and/or exterior doors (PDF). Exception: a building permit is not required if only replacing or changing sash. Safety glazing requirements must be considered in all cases.

If a contractor is replacing the windows, the city requires the contractor to be licensed with either the state or the City of Maplewood.

Note: Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors (PDF) are required to be placed throughout the house per code before a final inspection will be approved.
