Placer County's new expedited roofing program set to launch March 1

Published on Feb. 25, 2022

Beginning March 1, customers with roofing projects can now expedite the process with Placer County’s new Platinum Roofing Contractor Program from the comfort of their home or business. 

The program was developed by the Building Services program staff to incentivize quality re-roofing and safe installation while expediting the approval process.

Once qualified by the county’s Building Services Division, licensed roofing contractors can continue the installation of new roof coverings without inspection interruptions.

To ensure quality installations, the contractor self-certifies components of the installation process.  

The program includes verification and certification of roof decking and that vent pipes are unrestricted and flashed correctly, in lieu of a county inspection.  

County building inspectors will randomly sample the platinum-qualified roofing contractor projects to validate the integrity and intent of the program. 

“This is another great example of how our Building Services teams are partnering to establish programs - inspiring quality roofing installation with reduced installation times,” said Placer County Department of Building Services Chief Building Official Timothy Wegner.

The Platinum Roofing Contractor Program is part of Placer’s award-winning eServices program, which offers customers continuous access to services that typically require a visit to the county’s Community Development Resource Agency offices in North Auburn or Tahoe City.

Building Services is accepting applications for the program from licensed California roofing contractors. Learn more about the program here.
