Exterior waivers - Maryland Full Risk Reduction - update

In a meeting @ MDE yesterday it was announced that “effective immediately” Baltimore City will not issue any “winter” or “exterior” waivers for defective paint, stain, shellac, or varnish. It has been a misnomer that Baltimore City automatically issues these from November 1 through April 1. In addition, unless a property has a written waiver from a local code official, a property cannot use this option. The MDE website has a list of county code offices to contact, however these are only there as guidance.
