Your RCAT and NTRCA teams were in Austin May 1, 2017 for yet another legislative session committee hearing. For more than 20 years, RCAT has fought to protect the Texas roofing industry and property owners by asking the State for much needed regulation. HB 3293 was met with the usual opposition, but Texas State Representatives Giovanni Capriglione and Craig Goldman both did a great job of shutting down those arguments.

RCAT is now accepting applications to become a voluntarily Licensed Roofing Contractor! We have multiple testing dates scheduled around the state; which include a preparatory "boot camp" to help you get exam ready! That is four hours of classes and printed study materials to use during testing. See the LICENSING tab above for complete details and requirements to become licensed.

Licensing can be one of the greatest tools around to market your roofing business. Show those consumers that you have voluntarily stepped up to the plate; passed a test on your roofing knowledge and above all attend regularly scheduled educational programs keeping your company on the cutting edge of knowledge within your industry.  This certainly holds true in a State that has yet to see any need for registration or licensing of roofing contractors.
