Meeting Current NJ Safety Standards

For older structures, you may notice that they were not built to the same NJ safety standards that are in place today. This is a situation where you may need to pull a permit from the local East Orange Building Department and get their approval and sign off on the project. Why do they do this? The reason is to make sure that everything is going to be safe, that you followed the correct replacement window procedures, and that no one is going to have an unnecessary East Orange liability hazard because something was missed.

Clearly, this is going to be helpful to anyone that is funding a remodel.
