We were considering putting up siding.

Do we need a permit to do so? Is there a restriction on the type of siding that can be used and if so, what are our choices?

New homes are required to be 100% masonry construction. Although not considered masonry, cement fiber siding may be allowed in some locations such as bay window, dormers and second floor wall areas above a roof. Cement fiber siding would be allowed for replacement siding on exisitng homes. Permits and inspection for the weather resistive barrier behind the siding would be required. Contact Buildign Inspections at 972 292-5301 if you need more information.
