California roofing laws dictate specific requirements under the California Residential Code. These laws cover just about everything you need to know about proper roofing, including the materials and requirements for the construction of roof-ceiling systems, roof coverings and even roofing insulation. Additionally, these laws also include provisions for fire classification, weather protection, re-roofing, roof drainage, solar power and any additional rooftop structures like flagpoles.
With so many factors included in the California Roofing Code, homeowners might experience information overload. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about knowing everything as there is someone who knows this information by heart: a licensed roofing contractor.
