A person must not conceal any completed roof framing until after the expiration of 2 clear business days after the notification has been received by the Council.

Supervisor's Checklist

The supervisor’s checklist includes provisions relating to the handling, installation and inspection of roof framing, which must be systematically “ticked off” during the delivery and construction of the roof framing system.
