Is a building permit required for a new roof in West Milwaukee?
Information on the City of Milwaukee’s website seems a little undecided about the need for a building permit. For a tear-off of an old roof, they say “Maybe.” For a new roof installation (with new rafters, etc.) they say “Yes,” and for replacing shingles they say “Maybe.” Fortunately, they’ve provided a contact number: 414-286-8210, and we highly recommend using it.
