Did you know that the state of Texas does not have a license or any regulation of the roofing industry? This means that anyone can claim to be a “roofer” in Texas. During a
storm situation, there is a large rise in the number of roofing contractors in the area. Unfortunately we also have a high rate of scamming and insurance fraud from “fly-by-night” contractors due to lack of state regulation.
The RCAT 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, skills and professionalism through voluntary self-regulation. RCAT takes the pressure off of you by verifying that a contractor has met the standards of a true professional roofing contractor. To become licensed, the applicant must be a principal in a roofing company, in business in the state of Texas for at least three continuous years and carry insurance. After a thorough credit and background check, the
individual must pass a business and safety knowledge exam and a residential and/or commercial roofing exam, PLUS maintain eight hours of continuing education each year!
Scott Cantrell with Capitol Roofing is proud to be an RCAT licensed roofing contractor and would be grateful for the opportunity to do business with you.
