Forgive me. But with all the village haters, this conversation seems like it could be phony, just to make the village look bad.
I apologize to you if it's not. As far as your roof goes, replacing your plywood sheeting probably does require a permit. The building code definitely requires a minimum thickness of a roofs underlayment.
If the wrong material is used, the improper thickness installed, or the wrong fasteners are used to attach the sheathing, it could affect the strenth of your roof in severe weather.
Thus, the requirement for a permit.


The company that did the roof was Alure and they've been around since 1946 so I'm quite sure they know what they're doing. The original roof was 3/8 and they installed 1/2. The material used was plywood. They also installed a ridge vent which it did not have before and they installed ice dam material along the edges.This company has served the entire island for 68 years and they do all types of construction, not just roofs. They've done work where codes may vary from town to town so I'm sure they are up on them and they were also registered to do work in this area. If a permit was needed I'm sure the salesman I sat down with in the beginning would have told me about it. The village made a big stink, took my money and never came back to look at the job. They could have shown me the code, page such and such paragraph such and such but they did nothing, it was just their word.

<quoted text>did they ever come back and 'inspect" the plywood to make sure it was properly fastened or not? if they didn't, and just required you to pay a fee, then its only to make money. first, they can not come on to your property so you should have forced them off. second, make Tim B show you in his code handbook, which he should have on hand, where that violation is. I have read the code, and it says NOTHING about replacing plywood or needing a permit for a roof unless you are changing the structure. This is how the village makes money.


When I obtained their "permit" the inspector said they could install the plywood and he then needed to do an inspection. I called the village three times and left one message that the wood was almost completely installed and for the inspector to check it out before it was closed up. They never returned my call and no one ever came back.

The village also has a list of "approved vendors/contractors" who can come in to do work because they also have paid for a permit. What if their prices are higher than another company I wish to do work for me?
Eventually I want to have my wood steps replaced with brick or stone and have a sprinkler system installed. Do I need a permit for that also and does it have to be someone they say I have to use?

To New MB Resident...

Anyone who alters the structure of a house usually needs a permit, and that would include redecking a roof. The use of a licensed contractor usually alleviates that issue since they follow building codes.

That said, you are in a village and village codes must be followed. The contractor YOU hired is responsible for all issues including securing necessary permits and inspections. In your case, the need to redeck was possibly determined upon stripping the old roof.

Before you start any other work, why don't you go down to village hall and speak with the building department first (as anyone in a village, no matter where it is, would do).

I suspect by the time of your post (4:00AM) that you are just a troll trying to propogate your anti village mantra.

This situation should concern residents. Punishment for doing repairs to improve a house will be a deterrent in improving the neighborhood.

yup, it's all about the money. You got caught up in thee villages money making scam.
Here's how it works......
Tim b forces you to get a permit for something that doesn't require a permit. Then he never comes back to inspect the work that the permit was issued for. Then when you procced to finish the job, he comes and fines you for not getting the work inspected. It's a great scam and the state, county can't do a thing about it because we are a village. I would be shocked if you ARENT fined in the near future for not getting your plywood "inspected" by Tim B. Good luck.

This may come as a surprise to you Brady but I do have a job, hence the reason for being up At 4AM. Not everyone works from 9-5. I plan on looking into the matter further with the company that did the work and see what they have to say about it. As it stands right now I wasn't shown anything in the code this was necessary. It was a matter of them saying you need one because I said so. This doesn't sit well with me.
By the way Brady, do you work and what time do you get up in the morning? I work in Greenlawn and start at 6. Is that OK with you or should I change my hours to suit you and when I post on Topix?
what you have to realize is that Brady, aka Babs, has family that works at village hall so anything they do, is 100% correct.
So according to Brady, if I put new boards on my back deck, I'm altering the "structure" of the deck. This village and it's "employees" are out for the money, not the residents well being. These practices by Tim, Gary and the rest of the goons are why Bob and Gail were voted out. Hopefully these types of Gestapo antics will end after next years election.

Really Brady replacing a roof down to the ply.is not altering the structure of the building. your replacing a roof. $9000.00 for a new roof is not out of line depending on the size and type of material used. And it sound like some one needs boned.Sad pathetic Babs. angry angry angry wow. I am guessing Bab's has never had to pay for a roof the land lord fixes it for her.

i looked it up and there is no mention of plywood. it states that if you change the footprint of the structure you need a permit. you are permitted to do repairs without a permit. i am not hoodo, i am not a troll. i have a job and a life. everyone who has an issue with the village is not a troll either. these things need to stop. criminals should be getting "surprise inspections, not homeowners trying to improve their home.

that's all well and good, but we are a village now. This is what you voted for. Code enforcement looking over fences, peeking in window and fining the crap out of the residents because there is no other way to make money unless we raise taxes. To all of you that voted in the village, this is the type of government you voted for. And Brady, stfu already. People have actual problems with the village when they are getting screwed out of their money because Tim B, who isn't qualified for the FIVE jobs he has at village hall, feels like making up his own laws. Next year, vote the rest of these idiots out and clean house once and for all.

To Michelle (ha ha ha) and Hoodo (aka Ahole) and Issues Facebook admin (donato), I have put my registered name on my posts. If you want to message me, you had the chance. Instead, you all hide under the constantly changing aliases that you think hides your identities.

Michelle, you are so dumb that you always post on issues right after you use your ha ha ha (Shirley) moniker.

You will no longer see Really BRADY. If I post, I will mask my identity and you will be guessing whether it's me or not. Congratulations.

As of yet I haven't received anything in the mail. I can make copies of the times I called their office while the workers were still here on the job and show no one answered the phone. I was not going to let the roof sit open with the weather we just had and wait for them to get around to it for inspection. If they want to make a BFD out of the situation then they had better be ready to back it up and have some one come out. I don't see construction going on in the area where the inspector is up to his ass in alligators with work that he can't come by. I have no qualms about doing the right thing and the next project I have I will inquire about it. If they think they're going to fuck with me for shits and grins they have another thing coming. I don't know about the rest of you but if that's their intention, they picked on the wrong person.

I agree. A few years ago I saw a guy with a crew cleaning someones yard of leaves and debris. I asked him to come over and give me an estimate and I hired him to do the yard work also. The following year I called him for more work and he said he wasn't able to work in the area because he didn't have a permit. I assume he had his reasons for not getting one but the guy did a great job and I couldn't use him. How can I get estimates for fair prices if I can't go outside of those approved by the village only? What if I can get a job done by a reputable company for $10,000 and the village contractors want $15,000 or more? Am I forced to use the approved contractors and I have no say in the matter or I will get a stop work order and be fined?

first of all, i am not who you think i am. secondly, are you stalking people on facebook? that's creepy. you must have unlimited amounts of time to go on facebook and then quick switch over to topix. again it's creepy. apparently, i have hit a nerve, because whenever someone has a valid point; such as i shouldn't need to hire from an approved village list; you change the subject and start to harass people. sorry, but i am entitled to my opinion. i really don't care who you are. maybe you should get a job and a life and go outside and play instead of being a facebook/topix stalker.

Which is it? Are you a "New MB Resident," or have you lived here a few years?

You are full of BS. You are a phony. The funny part is that you think writing on here and making up lies about the village will help you disolve it.

I was renting the house I just purchased. My landlord fell on hard times and decided to put it up for sale. Since I had been renting I knew what I had so I applied for a mortgare and the house is now mine. I'm in the process of doing upgrades and since the house is now mine, that gives me the right to speak my mind. That makes me a New MB Resident! Now that I've explained myself to you, you can go fuck yourself, big mouth!
