Why Choose Roof Repair Specialist?
We are trusted by hundreds of homeowners to do roof repairs in San Marino, CA. The city has many guidelines that need to be followed, and our team is knowledgeable in obtaining city of San Marino permits.
Here are some of the guidelines particular to San Marino that we adhere to:
- Branded vehicles are not allowed to park on San Marino streets, unless the driver acquires a permit. For this reason we ask customers to park in their driveway, since we cannot park our company trucks on the street.
- Yard signs are also not allowed, and homeowners can be fined for having a yard sign on their lawn, so we do not place yard signs in San Marino.
What Type of Roofing System is Allowed in San Marino?
The biggest question we get asked by homeowners is whether they can install asphalt shingles in San Marino. The short answer is: it depends.
- The first thing the city will look at is what type of roof your neighbors have. They’ll look at the 5 neighbors in front of you, two to the sides, then 5 in the back. If anyone in that vicinity has a shingle roof, the probability of the homeowner getting a shingle roof approved is a lot greater.
- The next step is to attend the DRC meeting, which takes place weekly via zoom or in person. We attend this meeting for our customers, for a fee. We gather signatures from the neighbors signing off that they’re OK with the neighbor getting a shingle roof. We present this at the DRC meeting, and wait for the committee to make their decision.
- If the committee approves shingle roofing, the only materials allowed are typically Certainteed’s Landmark TL or Presidential TL, or a higher grade premium shingle. The committee won’t approve basic architectural shingles.
- Besides shingles, tile roof repairs and replacements are allowed, and the process is simple when we’re installing the same tile that’s already on the roof.
- Wood shake and wood shingles are also permitted.
