Building News and Updates!
- Permits are required for re-roofs.
- Roofers must be licensed locally in the City of Fort Collins
- See the updated roofing handout for Class 4 information

Due to the extremely high volume of scheduled roof inspections, we are not able to perform next-day inspection for roofs. Roof inspections are currently scheduled several months out, and we are working to address staffing and resource challenges to address the high workload. Thank you for your patience.
- Partial re-roofs of any size are allowed without a threshold for a full roof replacement. The portion being replaced must meet code and the manufacturer's installation instructions.
