Description:  One of the most costly home maintenance tasks that homeowners may face is the replacement of the roof of their homes. The installation of roofs is governed by the provisions of the Uniform Building Code and the Manufacturer's written installation instructions.

Examples: Building permits and the procedure for applying new roofs and reroofs are covered in the Uniform Building Code. Before a reroofing permit is issued, the specifications for the roof are checked by the Building Division to insure that the roofing materials and application comply with Building Code standards and the Manufacturer's installation requirements.


Certain types of roofing have special requirements. Please contact the Building Safety Division for more information: (209) 577-5232
