The information below is intended to provide you an overview of the permitting process for repairing your roof or installing a new roof, including altering the roof line of your home. For additional guidance on repairing your roof, see the following:

  • Roofing Guide and Checklist (PDF) prepared by Denver’s building inspectors. It contains helpful tips and code references for your roof project, as well as includes a checklist used by inspectors when evaluating a roof project.
  • Download this slide deck (PDF) for a summary of the roof permitting process, from scope of work (when do you need a roof permit?) to commonly overlooked building codes to inspections.

See the Project guide for roll offs and dumpsters to learn more about the permit requirements for storing a dumpster/container on your property during construction.

Before you start your project, you need to know what regulations apply to your property and what factors may impact your project. You’ll need to consider:

Historic Landmark Status

Any project that involves changes to the exterior of landmark structures or properties in historic landmark districts must be reviewed by Landmark Preservation staff before you begin. The appropriate zoning, building, curb cut, or revocable permits needed for the project will be issued only after design review has been completed and the project has been approved. To determine your property’s landmark status, use the Develop DENVER tool to the right. Then, visit the Design Review web page for more information.

Building Code

Denver Building Code provides minimum standards for building in order to safeguard public safety, health and welfare. The permitting and inspection process ensures that all home projects meet these standards and that all dwellings are safe and habitable at the time of construction.
