RE> Re: Wood Shingles 8/13/96 Last summer I had a new shake roof installed on my house in San Jose. We were pushing the envelope -- if you wanted a new (untreated) shake roof in California, you had to have your permit pulled by July 1, 1995. It's my understanding that the California legislature passed a ruling requiring all new roofs after July 1, 1995 to have Class A fire rating. The law also applies to re-roofs, but not to repairs affecting less than a certain percentage of roof area. I like the look of shakes, and I also wanted my new roof to last longer than 10 years -- which is about how long treated shakes last. The new law was news to me at the time. It seems like this one sneaked on through without a whole lot of press. I bet you'll be able to put wood shingles on your house, but they'll have to be treated with fire retardant if you pull a roofing permit. -------------------------------------- Date: 8/12/96 3:23 PM To: Shari Day From: seaoc(--nospam--at)power.NET Thanks for the response. I still have the same question. Show me where it says that can't be used or a law that says no. I agree with all the problems they create, but since I live in the redwoods where there are many people who mill there own materials, (myself included) and build their own houses, I see a lot of it. I also live in an historical preservation district with pre-nineteen hundred building design. The historical ordinance calls for wood shingles and is generally insisted on by the historical board. If it is not leagal, II need something I can oint my finger at and inform them and the building dept know. ...
