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
requirements that
could vastly impact the cost of a residential sprinkler system: For instance,

         water pressure - insufficient water pressure would require the installation of a pump

       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.
