CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Oct. 4, 2022) – Charlotte County Community Development Department is following the Department of Business Professional Regulation Emergency Declaration 2022-03, in which certified and registered general, building and residential contractors are not required to subcontract roofing jobs in Charlotte County.
Structures with roof damage are not required to have a permit for tarping a roof and securing a structure. The same is true for roof damage that is less than 100 square feet.
Roofs that have damage to the rafters, trusses or structural elements will need a renovation permit obtained by a general, building or residential contractor.
If the existing roof covering was installed before March 1, 2009 and more than 25% of the roof covering is damaged, the whole roof covering will need to be replaced.
If the existing roof covering was installed after March 1, 2009, the owner may elect to repair only the damaged area and not the whole roof.
Roofing permits may be obtained online at www.CharlottecountyFL.gov/permits or in the office by contractors registered with the County or as an owner-builder. Owner-builders must personally appear in person to obtain a permit according to Florida statutes.
For Hurricane Ian information, call the Charlotte County Emergency Operations Center at 941-833-5600 or 941-743-1320.
