Automatic Fire Sprinklers in Homes

All homes built after January 14, 2004 are required to have sprinklers. Montgomery County does not require sprinklers in existing single family dwellings that are being used as a residence unless they were built after the 2004 date. However, renovations to an existing home may require that a sprinkler system be installed. Please check with the Department of Permitting Services to see if the home renovations will require that a sprinkler system be installed.
