Do I need a permit to replace windows or siding?

Eaton County has decided not to require permits for siding replacement. We do require a permit for window replacement when the opening size is altered by making it larger. Please note that bedroom windows must either meet the minimum required egress size or be replaced with a window that does not reduce the current window opening size. A person or company contracting for this type of work must be licensed.
