Miami-Dade County offers “distance permitting” for roofing contractors

The Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources Construction, Permitting & Building Code Division announced a new ePermitting System application for Metal Roof Panels (Category 96) is available for use by licensed roofing contractors. The expansion of its proprietary ePermitting system will allow the issuance of Category 96 permits online via the department’s website.

Metal Roof Panel online forms are available to be completed and submitted electronically by applicants. The forms are reviewed and approved programmatically if valid permit and job-site data is submitted, and permit fees are paid for online using a credit card or e-Check. The permit card and job-site documents will be available to be printed by the applicant from the department’s Print Permit Menu once the application has been approved and paid for.

The availability of “distance permitting” allows roofing contractors to obtain permits remotely and is invaluable considering the urgent need to eliminate in-person gatherings amid the current COVID-19 pandemic.
