Is a permit needed to fix or replace a roof?

The City of OKmulgee only requires a permit to repair or replace a roof if the decking beneath the roof or other structural components supporting the roof are replaced.  Building code only allows one layer of shingles above the decking.  This means old roofing materials must be remov3ed before new roofing materials are installed.  Roofing companies must be licensed by the State of Oklahoma.
