Santa Clarita Valley Roof Repairs / Installation Requirements

Tips you should know before starting your next roofing project in Santa Clarita Valley (Canyon Country, Newhall, Saugus, and Valencia. Adjacent unincorporated communities include Castaic, Stevenson Ranch, Val Verde, and the master planned community of Newhall Ranch) for all roof repairs or installations:

Any new roofing or roof repair done in Santa Clarita Valley will require a permit from the city’s’ Building and Safety and will involve two building inspections. The first of the two inspections is a proper roof nailing inspection, where an inspector will inspect the nailing pattern of the roofing materials and then a final roof inspection, to ensure the job was done correctly. The city of Santa Clarita, as well as other cities that are located within the Santa Clarita Valley have no minimum roofing material requirements but do follow the State of California’s Uniform Building Code. Note that if you do belong to a homeowners association there may be restrictions on the particular roofing materials or roof color you are allowed to install. For additional home or commercial roofing project information, you may want to contact Building and Safety at 661-255-4935, or online at Santa Clarita Building and Safety, or Los Angeles County Building and Safety.

 

Santa Clarita Roofers should include the following for all projects:

  • Verify contractor is licensed with the California Contractors State License Board
  • By law roofing contractors must provide the following notices:
  • The contract must include an estimated start and complete date.
  • The contract should include a specific scope of work on what is included and what is not
  • The contract should include a schedule of payments and deposits cannot exceed 10% or $1,000.
  • Workmanship (Labor) and Material Warranty Information. Wind Warranty Information should also be noted
  • The Contract should also list the physical business address and not a P.O. Box
  • Local References

Robert LeeR.E. Lee Design & Construction, Inc.

“It’s a big undertaking to roof a new commercial building and re-roof an existing building, but Southern California roofing contractor GreatWay Roofing continues to be our first-choice roofing company for all of our projects. They’re always very detailed even before the job begins and their staff is very professional and conscientious.”

Ed LevequeSimi Valley, CA

“A great Company to hire for your roof. Matt spent the time explaining everything to me, and answered all my questions. The installation was quick and efficient, including the clean-up afterwards. The best compliment was when the city inspector came out and said I had hired a great company and said HE was impressed with the work they do.”

Steve D.Moorpark, CA

“We made the decision to replace our roof as a preventative measure on our 30-year old home. After soliciting 4 quotes, we decided to go with Greatway Roofing and conduct a tile reset. GreatWay was competitive in price and landed in the middle of the range as it related to cost. We decided to go with them, as we were comfortable with their project manager Ozzy and how the system was explained/presented. Ozzy did a good job communicating the process throughout. He clearly explained the features, benefits, codes and process. The project was completed on time and their team cleaned up at the end of each day.”

KarineNewbury Park

“We had three people come and give bids but we chose to go was Greatway. They were able to get it done before it started raining. Our next door neighbors daughter-in-law saw our house after it was done and painted and asked, ‘Did you do something to your house? It looks like an artist lives here!’ So it came out great and we've referred Greatway to two other neighbors.”
