New developments on Lubbock missing roof story

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There are new developments on a story KCBD NewsChannel 11 first brought you on Monday of a Lubbock man who came home to find the majority of his roof missing.

"I never talked to anyone about getting a roof done, not at all," says Ben Moss.

Moss lives at 1908 77th Street. He filed a police report and found out from neighbors that a roofing crew was spotted one street over at a house with the same address on that day.

Moss called the company working on the house one block over and they told him they were working on 77th Place on Saturday, not Friday, and were never on 77th Street.

NewsChannel 11 has learned from the City of Lubbock that no permits were filed for either address in question.

According to the City of Lubbock Building Inspection Department, it is illegal to do roofing repairs or replacement without a permit. According to the City of Lubbock website:

  • A roofing permit is required to tear off and replace shingles, or add a layer of shingles on top of existing shingles.
  • A remodeling permit is required if changing the framing or the pitch on the roof.
  • If the work is done with someone other than the homeowner, they must be registered with the City of Lubbock - Contractors Registration Form, and carry $10,000 Compliance Bond or Certificate of Insurance.
  • A roofing permit costs $30.00.
  • An inspection after completion is required.
  • Permits can be obtained at Building Inspection, located at 1625 13th Street, Room 106.

NewsChannel 11 contacted the construction company and they told us there was a mistake when filing for the permit, and has since been settled.

If you plan on having any roofing repairs, be sure to ask if the construction company has a permit. You can also check for yourself by calling 311 and asking for building inspections.
