Texas Requires a License To Cut Hair But Not To Replace Your Roof
If you’re finding some leaks in your roof from the recent storms be sure to watch this before you make a decision on which Fort Worth roofing contractor to call.
How to choose the right roofing contractor
Texas doesn’t require roofers to have a license. In fact there is no state regulations or oversight of who can install roofs. Until that changes you can protect your home and investment by following a few guidelines when choosing a roofing contractor.
- Make sure they are a local company with a physical address (not a PO Box) who will be here to fulfill their warranty if you have any issues in the future.
- Make sure they have a good rating with the Better Business Bureau. An A+ rating is the best, it means roofer has a perfect record (zero complaints) with the BBB.
- Make sure they are a GAF Factory-Certified Master Elite Roofing Contractor. GAF created this certification to give homeowners (that live in states like Texas that don’t require a roofers license) a way to ensure they are using a trusted roofing contractor. GAF has very strict requirements that roofers must meet to become a Master Elite Roofing Contractor. This includes completing hours of continuing education courses and meeting strict installation standards.
- Check to see if the roofing contractor has any professional associations like the North Texas Roofing Contractors Association. Associations like the NTRCA have an extensive qualifying process that requires 3 other current members to vouch for you.
