I'm not sure if a building permit is need for a patio. I guess I will call town hall tomorrow. Just wanted to know what others have done. I know it may vary from town to town.

I think in Cranford you may need it...but best to call town hall. In Cranford, you will probably be restricted by how LARGE the patio is. These things vary from town to town. If you need a good patio contractor, send me a Direct Message.

Nope, I'm not positive. Best to call...these things vary greatly between locales. If you need a professional recommendation, let me know.

In edison township you do not need a permit for a brick paver patio as water can seep through the bricks however with concrete you would need a permit.

also look out for zoning as well. Last time I asked my town (Berkeley Heights), we do not need permit or variance for redoing paver walkway, but will need both for a deck. Not sure about patio.

Maybe it depends on the size of your lot. I was told by the township a permit was not necessary. This is in North E.dison with a 1/2 acre lot
