610.0000 NEWLY CONSTRUCTED PROPERTY
610.0095 Soundproofing Homes Near Airports. Remodeling homes near airports to include soundproofing features such as the installation of insulation, storm windows, insulated walls constructed inside exterior walls, and special ventilating systems fall into the category of replacement items, not new construction. If, however, at the same time such remodeling occurs a home is substantially upgraded and thereafter no longer resembles the original home, the building activity would constitute new construction and the value of the home over and above the value of the soundproofing features would be subject to revaluation. LTA 11/1/1985 (No. 85/113).
