Do you need a permit for a new roof in Franklin, Wisconsin?
Yes, you’re required to get a building permit whether it’s a tear-off or adding another layer of shingles. You should be aware that Wisconsin State Code allows a maximum of two layers of shingles. Also, if you are planning to have metal roofing put on your home, it is subject to approval by their Architectural Review Board. You can contact them at 414-425-0084. For your convenience, the City of Franklin website has a printable building permit application.
