Hi,

Planning to replace an existing prefabricated standing shower in our second floor because of a leak. Do you know if...

1. It will increase my property tax if I'm replacing it with another prefab OR tiles?

2. Will I need a permit to get the job done?

I live in Roselle Park in a cape cod.

Thanks ahead for the info!

It depends on what kind of work you're doing. A minor aesthetic update like you described is not going to result in your property being reappraised. If you were gutting all your baths and your kitchen, that would be a different story. As for permits, you shouldn't need one if you're not going in the walls to move or replace plumbing. New tile or a new prefabricated enclosure and popping on a new shower head and faucet does not require a permit. But if you're pulling a tub and going in the wall to touch the plumbing, your municipality will likely require one.

For #2 call your local buildings department, they are the only people in the world to listen to on if you need one or not.
