Permit Fees for Impact Windows and Doors by Carlos Paesano

Homeowners planning to replace existing windows for impact-resistant windows always ask us how much permit fees will cost.  The answer is not simple as each municipality has different formulas to calculate the permit fees. To give our potential clients an idea of how much fees might be, we have looked at our accounting records.  The table provided below contains a short list of previous projects by municipality.  On this list, homeowners and our readers can learn how much our previous clients have paid for permit fees. We have included the total project cost to provide a tangible point of comparison.  It is our understanding that project cost is one of the important factors municipalities use to calculate the permit fees due.  In addition, they might use the square footage of glass replaced and the total number of different products installed (because they review each product approval).
