21 May Common Issues Facing Exterior Home Projects
What you didn’t know about your home improvement plans.
Michael Labriola Inc. is a premier landscape design and construction organization that continues to be one of the leading firms in Westchester and Fairfield Counties for residential landscape construction. Established in 1971, this second-generation family-owned business based in Armonk NY has set itself aside because of its ability to coordinate and complete a “one stop shop” approach.
With all of today’s rules and regulations, for a homeowner trying to accomplish one seemingly easy task, that task could turn into a headache very quickly. Michael Labriola to the rescue! The most common questions that arise: “how do I coordinate my landscape design project?” or “what kind of permits do I need to obtain for this?”
Issue: Did you know that each town, city or village in Westchester has their own codes and requirements for doing work on your property?
Solution: Following the initial consultation, Michael Labriola and his team assess the owner’s objectives and offer explanations regarding that town’s specific codes and requirements. Homeowners do not need to spend their own time figuring this out.
Issue: There are more restrictions and compliance regulations than ever before. There is a permit application needed for almost every exterior capital improvement in today’s environment, and a homeowner cannot assume that the property they own can be changed without checking with the Town or Village first.
Solution: Michael Labriola Inc. coordinates all proposals, permit applications, town approvals, and completes the process in a timely manner. Following the town approvals, it is Michael Labriola and his staff that implements all the work in its totality.
Michael Labriola Inc. works with engineers, and landscape architects to meet the necessary requirements to obtain the professional stamp, notarizing the permit application. Homeowners can save time by only working with one company, instead of coordinating with many vendors at once.
Michael Labriola Inc. specializes in all aspects of your landscape needs, including things you wouldn’t necessarily think of, such as: patios, drainage, swimming pool installation, driveway construction, outdoor kitchens, installation of propane tanks, generators, excavation and more!
To mention a few, below are some general requirements needed for the types of projects listed above:
- Allowable impervious surface/hardscape

- Wetland Issues
- Updated property/site surveys
