Why Is It Important To Choose A Licensed Roofing Contractor?
If you needed a medical procedure, would you choose an unlicensed physician? If you needed car repairs, would you go to an unlicensed mechanic? When given the choice, most individuals will select a professional who is licensed. Being a licensed anything makes a person or company more reputable, ensures a higher set of standards, and provides the consumer with options for recourse, should something go wrong.
Calidad Enterprises - RCAT Licensed Roofing Company in North Texas
The need for licensing is the same for a roofing service. Currently in the state of Texas, there are no regulations in place for the roofing industry. Anyone can claim to be a “roofer.” During storm season, you’ll see an increase of unlicensed roofing contractors in areas with significant damage. These roving contractors tend to follow bad weather in order to solicit business. In many instances, these roofers will scam homeowners or commit insurance fraud because they can get away with it – they don’t have a license to lose. Unfortunately, the consumer pays the price in the form of higher out-of-pocket expenses and inflated insurance premiums.
What Is An RCAT Licensed Roofing Contractor?
Under RCAT licensing standards, an applicant must be a principal in a roofing company that has been located in the state of Texas for at least three consecutive years. In addition, the roofing contractor must be insured. When an individual applies for an RCAT license, he/she must complete the following:
- Credit check
- Background check
- Business and Safety knowledge exam
- Residential and/or commercial roofing exam
- 8 hours of continuing education each year
It is RCAT’s job to ensure that a roofing contractor has met their required standards. If you’re wondering if the residential roofing company you’re considering has licensed roofers, you can verify their credentials by visiting RCAT’s website at http://rooftex.com/consumer-information/.
