Licensed contractors must submit roofing permit applications online. http://www.ci.wheatridge.co.us/permit Homeowners must apply in person at City Hall.
Contractors will be notified via email when permits are ready to be picked up in person. Once permits are in hand, inspections are being performed next day.
Existing permits that require amendments (for example, to add redecking) and all other non-roofing permits must be completed in person at City Hall on the second floor. The Building Division is open from 7:30-10:30 a.m. Monday-Friday to process these requests.
The City Building Division is working hard to fulfill the more than 1,400 roofing permit requests that have been submitted online. We are currently processing permits 5-8 business days from submission. Permits are processed in the order in which they are received, and as quickly as possible by our staff. We are continuing to add additional permit technicians and inspectors to help manage the tremendous volume of requests that have resulted from the worst hail storm ever to hit Wheat Ridge. Homeowners should continue to be vigilant in ensuring they are working with contractors licensed in the City of Wheat Ridge, and that once received, the permit with the correct address is posted on the home and visible from the street. A reminder that mid roof inspections are conducted to protect the homeowner and to ensure that quality work, as specified in City code, is being performed by contractors as roofs are replaced. We ask for and appreciate your continued patience with the permitting process.
