Does West Allis require a building permit for a roof replacement?
West Allis does not require a building permit for re-roofing. Per the “Do I need a Building Permit?” informational bulletin on the City of West Allis website:
"A building permit is not required to re-roof a dwelling unless the project involves structural changes such as changing a flat roof to a pitched roof or adding a dormer. The code only allows two layers of roofing material in total. Proper attic area roof venting is required to be installed in the upper and lower ends of roof areas."
