Reroofing projects that involve the same material, including size, shape, color and exposure, may be administratively approved through landmark quick review. This process is for minor work requiring permits but introducing little to no visible change to a historic structure or property. Applications must include information about the existing roofing material and color, and the proposed roofing material and color. Quick review applications are typically processed within a few business days of receipt provided that the applicable design guidelines and standards are met.
Reroofing projects that involve alternative materials, including synthetic versions of an existing roofing material, must be reviewed by the Landmark Preservation Commission.
