Our garage roof is needing replaced and our builder has suggested changing it from a flat roof to a pitched tiled roof. The garage adjoins the side of the house,
and the roof will slope from the shared wall down to the level of the current garage roof. Will we will need a building warrant or planning permission to carry out these works?
Alternatively, we could replace with a flat roof, but ideally we would add some height to this as the roof height is currently a little low. We’ve been advised that this wouldn’t require a warrant, but probably best to confirm this option too.
