No permit is required for existing detached one- or two-family dwellings for the roof covering materials. This include all buildings such as garages, sheds, pool houses, and the like that are accessory to a detached one- or two-family home (Group R-5). Stripping the roof down to existing sheathing or putting on a second layer of roof covering does NOT require a permit. Townhouses and condos will require roof permits. Replacing sheathing will always require a permit.
In all occupancies, no permit is required for the replacement of any part of a deck, porch or stoop that does not provide support to a building or structure. Any part includes the deck support posts or columns, headers or girders, floor joists, decking, railing, stairs, etc. Replacement of any of these parts will NOT require a permit. A total replacement, from the existing foundation or footing on up, will require a full permit. A total replacement, expansion of an existing deck, or the new installation of a deck will require a full permit, not a minor work permit.
