Is a building permit required to reroof a business?

A permit is not required for re-roofing projects on commercial buildings if the work does not require repair or replacement of the roof sheathing or deck structure. A permit is also not required if the project consists only of adding a roof covering over an existing single-layer roof covering.  A new roof covering must not be installed without removing the existing roof covering if the roof covering is water soaked or deteriorated, if it consists of wood shake or tile, or if it has two or more layers of any type of roof covering.
