Property owners can perform the work themselves but must be able to meet the New York State Uniform Building and Fire Code requirements of their project. Also, they must complete and sign an affidavit indicating that their homeowner's insurance will cover them and the property while the work is underway.
There is one exception: plumbing permits require the work to be performed by a plumber licensed in the Town. The list of licensed plumbers is updated throughout the year. View the application for becoming a licensed plumber (PDF) in the Town of Irondequoit.
