All reroofs will undergo an in-progress inspection and a final inspection. The purpose of the in-progress
inspection is to verify the underlayment requirements and compliance with the Hurricane Mitigation
requirements. The contractor must schedule the in-process inspection for the day the job starts so the
inspector can visit the job at the appropriate time.
If the Contractor so chooses, the in-progress inspection may be substituted with photos that certify the
requirements associated with a reroof. The Contractor must then have adequate photos to verify that the
nails are the correct nails, installed with the correct spacing and are not over driven. Also, photos that show
compliance with the other requirements listed below. If adequate photos are not taken, the Contractor may
be required to strip back shingles to verify compliance with the code. It is recommended to take a photo of
the box of nails with the label prominently displayed.
