Building permits and inspections are required for most types of construction  and alterations (residential and commercial) including: re-roofing, siding, additions, sheds, pools, new and replacement furnaces, water heaters, central air, sprinkler systems (both fire and irrigation), fuel tanks (abandonment and new installations), alarm systems (burglar and fire), fences, porch enclosures, attic "conversions, basement renovations, fireplaces, demolitions, sump pumps, plumbing and all electrical work.

Contact the building department to help you determine if a permit is needed. We can explain what kind of documentation you’ll need with your application and help streamline the process for you before you begin. 
Getting a building permit blank can be as simple as signing on to the
Rochelle Park Municipal web site or going to http://njpermits.com. Blank forms for all the required types of work are available to be downloaded, completed at home and brought or mailed to the Building Department.
If construction takes place outside of the existing structure or if your applying for a permit for sheds, fences, decks, pools or driveways, bring your property survey to the building department so we can review the work for compliance with township zoning ordinances.
You can do your own electrical and plumbing work ONLY in your owner occupied, single family detached dwelling.
Once the work has been approved, a certificate is issued to permit use of the improvement. This certificate also releases the owner to make final payment to the contractor.  This law was enacted by the Division of Consumer Affairs to protect owners from consumer problems related to unsatisfactory work at the end of a job. By law, you must not make the final payment until the Building Department inspects and approves the construction.
Building permits help to insure safe occupancies. If you see construction being done without permits or illegal occupancies please contact the
Building Department. All information is handled in a manner insuring our confidentiality.
