Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I am planning on purchasing a family home in Altadena, and I will be remodeling the property; When all permits are approve, do I need a demo permit before I remove the old roof?

Please contact the San Gabriel Valley Building and Safety District Office at (626) 574-0941 to verify which permits are required for the scope of work proposed.

If you first obtain a permit from Building and Safety to replace the roof the demolition of the existing roof will be included in the permitted work.
