If the proposed fence will be crossing/enclosing a marked easement on the property or if a survey cannot be provided, the fence waiver - homeownermust be completed and submitted before the permit can be issued.
This includes storage buildings, detached garages, carports, gazebos, or any other structure that is not attached to the house. See RDC Section 77-303. All accessory buildings require a permit.
Whenever a roof is replaced, a permit is required. Use this application form to apply for a permit to re-roof a structure. After the roof is complete, a city building inspector will inspect the attic area of the structure to verify that all gas vents are still properly connected (to prevent carbon monoxide issues) and that the vents meet the minimum clearance from wood (to prevent a fire hazard). Someone over the age of 21 must be at the home when the inspection is made. Inspectors can give a two hour window if you call at 8:00 am the morning of the inspection. You can also choose to inspect the attic area yourself and waive the inspection required by the City of Rowlett by filling out this form. If your house is all electric and has no gas appliances, you can also waive inspection by filling out this waiver form.
The City of Rowlett does permit homeowners to install irrigation systems on their own property, however the plans must be signed and sealed by a licensed irrigator, landscape architect or engineer. For more information on lawn irrigation systems, please see our Lawn Irrigation Requirements handout.
