Contractor Permit Types
We have tried our best to provide all the information necessary on this page to help you understand the process for permitting your project from beginning to the end.
Once you've made application, the permit can be processed and made ready for issuance.
When you receive your permit, the job card will outline what inspections are necessary for your project. You may schedule the inspection by calling 386-986-4747 or through this website. All approved documents are required to be available for the inspector when he arrives. The inspector will sign your job card if the inspections passes.
Please Note: A separate permit is required for skylights and cannot be combined with the roofing permit.
All approved documents and permit must be at the jobsite for the inspection(s).
In-progress / Dry-in Inspection
The purpose of the in-progress / dry-in inspection is primarily so inspectors can check underlayment installation, to verify roof deck condition and spot check roof sheathing re-nailing but to also check materials in use match what is shown on roofing worksheets. The in-progress / dry-in inspection must be scheduled at a point where installation of roofing underlayment is at least 50% to 100% complete and the roof covering installation is not more than 25% complete. All drip edge flashings complete. There is some flexibility to these parameters and inspectors will work to coordinate inspection times throughout the day to keep re-roofing projects moving.
A roofing affidavit is required to be submitted to the office prior to the final inspection. The affidavit should be uploaded through the online permitting portal. Once the affidavit has been entered into our database, you can schedule the final inspection.
Roofing affidavits are not required for a 'roof over' where the existing shingles are not being removed.
The permit will remain active for six months from the date of issuance, if the permit expires without the required inspections, a new permit will be required.
NOTE: The job site will need to be clean from all debris and dumpster/trash enclosure for the final inspection.
