Answers:

In SW Florida you can do anything to your own house, but you are required to get a permit and pass inspections. For a shingled roof, you will need to tear off old roof, place tar paper down and have your first inspection. Then you can shingle, and have a final inspection. If your shingles are 3-tab, you might be able to re-roof, or put a second layer of shingles over your existing shingles. That too requires a permit. Be sure to know the codes, like putting roofing cement on the shingles near the rake and using the correct number of nails for your county per shingle. (Could be five). IF you have questions ask the inspectors, they actually can be quite helpful.

Unless there is some ordinance (state, local or hoa related) against it, then sure. This is kinda an odd ordinance to have, where I am roof shingles are everywhere but possibly things are different in Florida.

They have some pretty serious laws and regulations about roof materials and alterations in FL...

If you don't know how to install to prevent them lifting in high wind, you would likely not be satisfying the local building codes.

USA is a free country. You are free to do a lot to your own possessions- some areas are more restrictive than others. However- if you are under contract to sell your house- the contract may require the homeowner hire a licensed person and not do your own repairs.

Why wouldn't they be able to if they know how??

Yes but you still have to get a permit and you may be restricted from selling for one year. Depends on which county you're in.

Yes a home owner any where in the United States is able to re-roof their house. IN re-roofing the house they should make sure they are not required to apply for and obtain a city permit. Some cities require a permit and some cities do not require a permit.

The city might have city codes of certain shingles that would be required, such as fire retardant shingles or other city codes.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.


"FIGHT ON"

I don't see why not. I helped my dad reshingled his house twice over 40 years. Anyone can buy shingles and the tar paper. The hard part is lifting those packages up the ladder, and all the removal of the torn off shingles.

Why not?

Yes. Understand that there are many different types of 'shingles' though and many rules on how they should be fastened, etc.
