Choose a residential roofing contractor you can trust.
The Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation does NOT currently administer licensure for roofing contractors. Anyone can call themselves a roofer in Texas and without being knowledgeable, insured, licensed, or even registered with the state. Roofing is a highly skilled trade.
The roof is structurally the most important component protecting the contents and integrity of the your home. Texas residents deserve a higher standard so the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas (RACT) Licensed Roofing Contractor program was developed. RCAT is used to increase consumer protection and secure public confidence in the roofing industry. The program elevates the roofing contractor’s knowledge and professionalism through voluntary self-regulation.

What Are Some Benefits With A Licensed Roofer?
A reputable roofing contractor, such as Kangaroo Contractors, will offer high quality roofing and maintain a license in Texas. It’s a great way to determine if your roofer meets certain standards and will do the job right the first time.
Always work with a contractor who adheres to the National Roofing Contractors Association standards. The roofer should additionally be bonded and fully insured to handle your roofing project.
Being bonded means the bonding financial institution or company has investigated the contractor’s background and ensured it is trustworthy. A certified and licensed roofer often knows the industry and what your roofing system needs.
Overall, certified and licensed roofers help ensure the roofing work will be completed successfully and that you’re working with professionals. Licensed roofers are more likely to issue a legally binding contract for the project to be performed and give a written estimate to the customer. Kangaroo Contractors understand that a roof is the most important structural part of your home. We want you to be rest assured we are the certified and licensed roofing contractor to make your roof replacement a top priority.
Insurance coverage is an absolute necessity! An unlicensed roofer or roofing company, or your friend or family will most likely be uninsured. Uninsured equals liability. You may be liable to pay medical bills and lost wages if they get injured while working on your property.
On the other hand, reputable and licensed roofers should be insured and carry liability coverage. This way, you won’t have to worry about anything, should something happen to your property or to the contractor. Typically, licensure requires a minimum general liability insurance for roofing contractors. Kangaroo Contractors carry General Liability Insurance, so that you’re covered and we’re covered on the job!
Being Reputable Matters
When you are planning to hire a roofer, there are a few things you need to find out about them, and their company, before forging ahead with the work you need to be completed. Your roof is arguably the most important part of a home or business. As such, you should hire a reliable roofing contractor who is licensed and insured to handle the task. Hiring a bad contractor, or one who is not licensed or insured could end in one spending far more than necessary to fix the mess the first contractor made.
A roofing contractor should have valid and verifiable liability insurance that will protect you, the homeowner, or business owner if an accident happens at your home or business.
Also, check references and online reviews of the company to make sure they do not have any legal claims against them, and that they are in good standing.
