- No, if the repairs are of a
minor nature and you are replacing like for like. This includes replacing
the felt to a flat roof, repainting, replacing a small area of previously

re-roofing if the tiles are of the same type then no approval need be
sought. If the new tile or roofing material is substantially heavier or
lighter than the existing material, then an approval under Building
Regulations will be required.

This history is typically previously approved plans with dates of all building additions
done and general data about the construction. The Building Inspectorate Main Office
