Step 6.Schedule an inspection

As of Jan. 1, 2020, the city has reinstated the dry-in/in-progress inspection (inspection code 125) for all residential and commercial re-roof projects. The city also requires a completed inspection affidavit for the final inspection to verify the roof decking nail down and secondary water barrier installation.

Any re-roof permit issued on or after this date that did not receive a dry-in inspection, may receive disapproval at final inspection and may be subject to removing a portion of or all of the roof covering, to allow inspection of the underlayment and nailing of the sheathing.
