If you are only adding a layer of shingles, a permit is not required. A maximum of two (2) layers is allowed. Otherwise, you will need to remove all shingles down to the wood sheathing of the roof which requires a building permit and inspections. Also, if you are repairing roof damage or remodeling the roof, you are required to submit for and obtain a building permit and inspections.

Requirements for submitting a permit application

  1. Permit Application Form
  2. Construction Plans — only required if you are remodeling the roof

Permit fees are $94.94 and will be invoiced after the applications is received. Permit fees pay for the inspections which will need to be done at the property. 

Submit signed application and plans (if applicable) to the Building Department by email at  Payments can be made by check payable to Herriman City or by phone with a credit card. 

Please call 801-446-5327 before 4:00 p.m. to schedule inspections for the following business day or after. Re-Roofs typically require two inspections:
