Roofing Requirements

Roofing Requirements
All work involving new roofs and re-roofing work must be permitted. Homeowners that homestead residential property may do the work themselves. The Grayson County Appraisal District website must indicate that you own the property and that it is homesteaded. All other roofing permits can only be issued to a registered general contractor.

The permit application must describe all work that is to be done. If decking or rafters are being replaced, you must state so in the permit application. If you discover that decking or rafters are damaged after removing the old roof, you must contact us to modify the permit. Please be aware that only 2 layers of shngles are allowed on the roof. We will require all shingles to be removed if more than 2 layers exist when the final inspection is performed.

Metal Roofs
Metal roofs require a variance from the Zoning Board of Adjustment. Please contact the Planning Department at: (903) 464-4467 to request a variance.
