Yes, a permit is required to re-roof your house whether it is a complete tear off and re-roof or just adding a 2nd layer of roofing to an existing roof. It is important to note that only 2 layers of roofing may be applied. If the project is a complete tear off ice and snow shield must be applied to the roof decking. Please refer to the roofing permit brochure for more detailed instruction on roof permits.
