Mastering NYC Building Violation Corrections with Zicklin Contracting


Thousands of New York City buildings receive violations from the Department of Buildings (DOB) every year. Did you know that in 2023 alone, over 25,000 building violations were issued? This staggering number reflects the complexity and strictness of NYC building codes. This often translates to stress, confusion, and unexpected expenses for property owners. But worry not—Zicklin Contracting, a leading waterproofing and Restoration Company in New York City, is here to guide you through the NYC building violation corrections process with ease and expertise.

At Zicklin Contracting, we understand the intricacies of building codes and the pain points property owners face. We aim to simplify this process, save you time and money, and ensure your property complies with all regulations. This guide will cover everything you need to know about addressing building violations, from understanding the types of breaches to implementing corrective actions effectively.

Understanding NYC Building Violations

Types of Violations

NYC building violations fall into three primary categories:

  • Class 1 (Immediately Hazardous): These are the most severe violations that threaten life, health, or safety. Examples include structural instability and unsafe construction practices.

  • Class 2 (Major Violations): These violations aren't immediately dangerous but require prompt attention. They include issues like improper plumbing or electrical work.

  • Class 3 (Lesser Violations): These are minor infractions, such as administrative or small maintenance problems.

The Consequences of Ignoring Violations

In severe cases, ignoring building violations can lead to hefty fines, legal actions, and even eviction. The DOB enforces strict compliance, and unresolved violations can hinder property sales or refinancing

Steps to Correct Building Violations
  • 1. Identify and Understand the Violation

    The first step in addressing a building violation is to thoroughly understand the notice issued by the DOB. Review the violation details carefully to grasp the specific code requirements.

  • 2. Hire a Professional Inspection

    Engage a licensed inspector to evaluate the violation and provide a comprehensive report. This step is crucial in determining the scope of work needed for correction.

  • 3. Develop a Correction Plan

    Create a detailed plan to address the violation. This may involve hiring qualified contractors, such as Zicklin Contracting, specializing in building code compliance and repairs.

  • 4. Obtain Necessary Permits

    Most corrections will require permits from the DOB. Ensure you apply for and secure all necessary permits before commencing any work.

  • 5. Perform the Corrective Work

    Execute the correction plan with precision and compliance. Zicklin Contracting’s expertise in waterproofing and restoration ensures that all repairs meet NYC building standards.

  • 6. Schedule a Re-inspection

    After completing the work, schedule a re-inspection with the DOB to verify that the violation has been adequately corrected.
