RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS - One & two family dwellings do not require a permit to replace shingles only. Permits are required for re-roofing projects that include the repair or replacement of roof decking. All re-roofing projects, including those that do not require a building permit, must meet the provisions in Chapter 9 of the International Residential Code. Flashings and drip edges are required.Roofs containing two or more layers of shingles must be completely removed before installation of new shingles. Underlayment must also be replaced when re-shingling a roof.
All citizens are encouraged to use roofing contractors who are registered with the city and are members of the North Texas Roofing Contractors Association. A searchable website is available at https://www.ntrca.com/
