Below are the guidelines to consider before starting a roofing project.

Roofing Requirements

The City of Beverly Hills requires all new roofs to have a fire rating classification of Class A Fire-Rated, Non-Wood.

For existing wood roof information please visit the Wood Roof Ordinance webpage

Using green products for exteriors can improve air quality and insulation. Cool Roofs and solar panels can also benefit the building by moderating temperatures and reducing the need for cooling and heating. 

A licensed contractor is required for any work being done over $500, and is recommended for any roofing project. The City will verify that the contractor’s license is active and in good standings with the State of California Contractor’s License Board and that the contractor has the proper insurance for the contracted work.

Inspections are also required as part of the plan check process. The inspection process verifies the roofing material has been installed per the manufacturer’s specifications, structural stability, and code compliance.

Permit information

A permit is required to perform any changes to a roof. An electrical permit is required to install solar panels.

Roofing Permits can be obtained during City walk-in hours (Monday - Thursday 8AM -10AM), or with an appointment. Please review the Permit Center Plan Review and Permitting Guide, or call (310) 285-1141 to schedule an appointment.
