Roofing (Residential/Commercial)

This classification allows the licensee to apply, repair, or install weatherproofing (i.e. asphaltum, pitch, tar, felt, glass fabric, flax, or other commonly used materials or systems) or roof accessories (i.e. flashing, valleys, gravel stops, or sheet metal) as required for the licensee to install and repair: Roof tile, Shingles, Slate, Metal roofing systems, Urethane foam, and Roof insulation or coatings on or above the roof deck. This classification allows the licensee to replace up to 10 percent of the total roof substrate square footage as it relates to issues with substrate discovered after execution of the initial contract. Replacing more than 10 percent of the roof substrate square footage as it relates to issues with substrate discovered after execution of the initial contract requires licensee to subcontract work to a properly licensed contractor. This classification also allows the licensee to install new or replace existing skylights where it does not require changes to the roof framing or roof structure and replace fascia not to exceed 24 linear feet. Licensee may lift HVAC equipment to allow for proper installation of roofing material. However, the licensee must subcontract work to a properly licensed contractor if HVAC equipment ducting requires any modification to allow for proper installation of roofing material.
