License required for New Jersey?


Hello, I was wondering if any license or permit is needed for doing torch down roofing on my own house in the state of New Jersey.


Thanks for the help.

License or not I'd never suggest a DIY do it.

I'm actually a retired contractor with 15 years of experience. Thank you for the concern.

I'm just not sure if it is legal to do this without any sort of license. After all, this requires the use of fire.

Best way to find out is call the building inspector.
People on any DIY web site could be from any place on the planet.
Really want to count on a stranger?
Highly unlikely you need a license, but they may require a permit.
It would be interesting trying to get your insurance company to pay a claim when they see what you where doing.

Do yourself a favor. Assuming you own a roofing torch, take it out and light it at night and hit the trigger. That will be all you will need to cure you of using a roofing torch on wood frame construction. Don't do it, there are too many good alternatives.
