If you are a Home Owner

If you are a home owner looking for a roofer, check this website. Your roofer will need to be registered with the Attorney General. 

Once you are comfortable with your roofer, make sure the proper permit is obtained with the City of Junction City. There will be at least 2 inspections that will need to be performed during the work. Once the roof coverings (shingles) have been removed (this is called the mid-roof inspection) and the final inspection, which is once the roof has been completed.

If you are a Roofer

In the event that any repairs, replacement or alterations are made on any roof coverings, a permit and inspections are required.

 Per Section 1510 of the 2012 IBC and Section R907 of the 2012 IRC, no new roof covering shall be installed without removing all existing layers first, to the decking, when the existing roof has two (2) or more applications of roof coverings.
