Residential Sprinklers - Costs
August 16, 2013
At our Annual Conference held in April, the subject of Residential Sprinkler System costs was raised.
This is a very complex subject. At the conference, we were not able to provide enough time to thoroughly review all code enforcement and financial implications of residential sprinkler systems.
As you are aware, any residential sprinkler system will be designed under NFPA standards. In this regard, we, as Code Enforcement professionals, need to remember some of the additional
· houses dependent upon wells for water supply may require the installation of a holding tank to ensure adequate water supply for the sprinkler system
· house design (layout) could affect directly the overall cost of a sprinkler system
To further understand the financial ramifications of requiring residential sprinkler systems to new residential housing codes, we are encouraging you to contact your local home builders association, or local sprinkler system companies to obtain accurate pricing.
Thank you for attending the NYSBOC annual conference. We look forward to seeing you again at next year's conference.
Recreate NY Smart Home Program (Link)
July 08, 2013
The Recreate NY Smart Home Program was established to provide assistance to eligible
homeowners who suered direct physical damage as a result of Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene
or Tropical Storm Lee..
Assistance may be provided to address remaining unmet housing recovery needs in a variety of
categories, including home repair/rehabilitation, mitigation/elevation and/or buyouts. Assistance
may also be available to owners of rental properties in the impacted regions. Receipt of funding
under this program may not duplicate disaster-related assistance you have already received or may
be eligible for from other federal, state, local and/or private sources of disaster-related assistance,
including, but not limited to, homeowners and/or flood insurance proceeds.
