Since we were talking about roof replacement I decided to check to see
how old my roof actually is since I don't have any repair receipts going
back longer than 15 or 20 years.
Went on-line to city records and found all the permits pulled for this
house going back to 1932 but saw nothing for the roof.
I personally know the contractor to be a proper kind of a guy
so checked the rules and regulations and see that for simply adding
shingles to a roof, no permit is necessary.
In checking, I see that Milwaukee is just nuts about rules and a permit
is needed for just about everything...including a photo shoot...but no
requirement for a roof, unless rafters are replaced.
Incredibly...no permit is required for asbestos abatement if a single
family home. Very odd
