Do I need a permit to replace my roof?

No.  However, due to the weight of roofing materials and load capacity of framed structures, there should be no more than two (2) roofing layers applied to most structures.  There should also be an ice barrier applied under shingles or rolled roofing from the lowest roof edge to a point 24 inches  (36 inches if the slope is 8/12 or greater) inside the exterior wall line.  Please contact the building official with any questions.
