First step is to get condo approval. Then get letters from neighbors. Then go to licenses/inspections. You can work through lic and inspections at city hall or grab a local attorney. Marsha Wolf or frank ermilo would be happy to help. Since it's a condo, you will also need an engineer or architect to provide drawings. My guess is you will faint at the cost.

Permits without question, however, in most condo's, you do not own the roof, and are not allowed to alter the exterior. Check with your condo documents and Condo Association....Best of luck! Jim

Dear Rdacey2000,

Please do get the required permits and use licensed contractors for the work you are considering. Permits represent the "minimum" in building requirements and are in place to protect YOU the property owner from poor workmanship.
Unpermitted work=poor work.

Does the complex allow you to do that--if you haven't checked do check beforehand--yes, permits are necessary, check with your licensed contractor and or local building's department for additional information
