The Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation does NOT currently administer licensure for roofing contractors. Anyone can call themselves a roofer in Texas and they are not required to be knowledgeable, insured, licensed, or even registered with the state. Roofing is a highly skilled trade and the roof is structurally the most important component protecting the contents and integrity of the home or business! Texas residents deserve a higher standard so the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas Licensed Roofing Contractor program was developed to increase consumer protection and secure public confidence in the roofing industry by elevating the roofing contractor’s knowledge and professionalism through voluntary self-regulation.

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 and as such, needs to have 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.
