Hazleton, PA asked in Construction Law for Pennsylvania

Q: I want to do some home repairs,am I considered a contractor by PA workers compensation law?

I purchased a mobile home located in Camelot Estates in Mill Hall PA. at 10 Merlyn Road, Mill Hall PA. 17751. I purchased the home June of this year, at the time of purchase portions of the front porch and rear deck/porch were unsafe to walk on and needed replaced. I purchased the home knowing the porches needed replaced/repaired. My wife, son and I are going to be doing the repairs/replacement ourselves. I will not be employing anyone to help complete the projects.

A: Don't you think it would be a good idea to check with the local authorities about getting a building permit and finding out if one is required or not?
