Roofing Contractor Registration – Roofing License Requirements

Roofing Contractor Registration

State-by-State Roofing License Requirements

Many states in the United States require roofing contractors to register with their state.  Not all states require registration.  The states that have specific requirements often also have required fees.  Some registration fees may need to be renewed annually, while other may have a longer term.

These states don’t necessarily call the certification a Roofing License, but usually refer to it more generally as a contractor’s license or contractor registration.

Many states require the contractor to be insured in order to complete the registration process.  Some states give homeowners the ability to search for contractors to see if they are registered with their state, and properly insured.

Below you will find links to each state’s contractor registration pages.  Laws change regularly, but as of the publishing of this page, not every state requires roofers to register or be licensed.  Also, some states only require certain roofers to register, based upon job costs or other criteria.

In order to be legally operating a roofing company, make sure you are following the contractor registration and licensing requirements in your state.
