Madison Heights Building Official
With spring fast approaching and the construction season starting to gain speed. Remember to contact the building department before starting any construction projects.
This month let’s talk about roofs...
Missing shingles can lead to leaks. Poor ventilation can lead to your roof overheating and causing your shingles to curl ,creating a fish scale look. Watch for stones in your gutters and or at the end of your downspouts, some are normal a lot is not and depending on the age of your roof can be a sign to have a professional roof contractor look at the overall condition of your roof. When replacing always remember you need to have ice and water installed per the code and manufacture specs. Any roof that wants to add a second course without removing the old shingles must have the roof looked at to verify the roof only has a single layer and is a candidate for a layover.
All roofs including garages are required to have a permit.
So if you need a roof replaced we at the community development department have you covered.
Call us at 248-583-0831 for all your permitting needs.
