Many Kenhorst property owners have been approached recently by contractors regarding the possible need for their roof to be replaced due to damage resulting from the May hail storm.
Property owners and contractors are reminded of the following:
A building permit is required if 25% or more of the roof is being replaced. Siding and gutter work does not require a permit. Roof permit application forms can be obtained at the Borough Office or accessed online:
The cost for a roof permit is $74.00 and must be applied for and approved prior to the start of work. Per Borough Ordinance, the permit fee will be doubled if work is begun prior to the permit being issued.
Kenhorst Borough requires that a permit be obtained before any sales representative is authorized to solicit door-to-door. Property owners are strongly encouraged to ask to see a Borough Solicitation permit which will clearly state the specific date that the permit is approved for. Contact the Reading Police immediately at 610-655-6111 or 610-655-6116 if you are solicited by someone who cannot produce their approved Kenhorst Solicitation permit.
