On behalf of all Texas Roofing Contractors, RCAT fights to defend your business from harmful legislation and to develop public policy solutions designed to safeguard and advance your business interests. We have been hard at work preparing for the 2019 Legislative Session and plan to support new legislation impacting your roofing business.


Join fellow roofing industry professionals for our First Annual Roofing Day in Austin, TX, as we take our message to the Capitol! It is important for members of the Texas Legislature see and hear from you about the critical issues our roofing industry is facing. To be seen and heard, we need the industry speaking with one voice! Don't miss this opportunity to make a difference.
