The Beverly Hills Wood Roof Ordinance requires all roofs in the City to meet Class A non-wood roof fire retardant standards. The Ordinance further restricts the use of wood as an allowable roofing material.
Wood roofs may not be replaced in the City of Beverly Hills. Historical Properties are exempt.
Compliance Options for Existing Wood Roofs
Option 1. Re-roof the property with a non-wood roofing material. A re-roof permit is required from the Community Development Department.
Option 2. Apply a temporary fire retardant spray to non-class A wood roofs. A no-fee permit is required from the Community Development Department.
