Why is Finding a Certified Roofing Company So Important?

Finding a trustworthy roofing contractor in Houston or Austin for your home or business can be challenging. People often rush to hire someone quickly, leading to disastrous projects. Some roofers might seem friendly, but you don't want to take chances with roofing contractors. They might offer to help with your deductible, which is illegal for both them and you, just to secure the job and get paid. Uncertified roofers often prioritize their interests over yours. Without knowing what to look for, finding an honest and reliable contractor can be tough. That's why homeowners depend on a roofing company's certifications and trainings in addition to their reviews to make the best decision for their roofing needs! 

Why are Roofing Certifications so Critical in Texas?

Unfortunately, the State of Texas does not require a license, registration, insurance, formal training, or any expertise to become a "roofing contractor". The entry requirements are so minimal that almost anyone can claim to be a roofer. However, when a Texas roofing contractor meets the requirements to become an RCAT Certified Contractor and then takes the time to obtain this certification, it shows their commitment to their craft. Consumers can be confident that such contractors are dedicated to meeting and exceeding the highest standards in the Texas roofing industry. Martin Roofing and Solar is not only an active member of RCAT, but is certified by countless shingle manufacturers and organizations in both Houston and Austin. We are certified shingle masters with both Certainteed and GAF (two best shingle brands on the market); this is something less than 3% of roofing contractors can say. We ensure we are both a Houston certified roofing company and an Austin certified roofing company!

What Are the Risks of Hiring Not Certified Roofers?

In states like Texas, where roofing certification unfortunately isn't mandatory, homeowners' risk being deceived by unqualified "roofers" offering cheap solutions. These roofers might seem nice initially, but their work or actions can easily turn detrimental. These fly-by-night "roofers" or "roofing companies" can even disappear after collecting payments. RCAT and other certifications help protect property owners and homeowners from such risks. Often, shoddy contractors offer low rates because they lack qualifications. Their primary goal is securing the job, without having the technical knowledge needed. They often aren't insured, leaving property owners unprotected. These contractors often make unrealistic promises and may be using your roof as a learning project. This can quickly turn your roofing project into a nightmare. 

What are the Benefits of Hiring a Certified Roofing Company?

Peace of Mind – Homeowners expect their roofer to be trustworthy. RCAT members adhere to higher standards, providing peace of mind when a contractor is working on their roof. In addition to RCAT, your roofer should also be certified with the primary shingle manufacturer they install. Be sure to screen any potential company for these certifications to ensure they are an Austin or Houston certified roofing company.

Reliable and Compliant Services – To become an RCAT member, contractors must demonstrate proven training in roofing. RCAT certified roofing contractors are committed to exceeding industry norms. RCAT encourages members to continually update their skills and knowledge, offering opportunities for ongoing education and information exchange. Certifications with shingle manufacturers, such as ours with both CertainTeed and GAF, also offer the same classes and ongoing self-improvement opportunities that should be a priority to the roofing company you choose to work with. We are always trying to sharpen our skillset in order to improve our craft in both Houston and Austin.

 

Manufacturer’s Warranty Protection – Roof installations often come with a manufacturer’s warranty, which can be voided if repairs or the replacement are done by an unqualified individual. Most top-tier contractors are part of professional organizations like RCAT in addition to being certified with multiple shingle manufacturers. However, in Texas, membership in such bodies is not mandatory, making it easier for novices to pose as experts. Shingle manufacturers also typically allow certified roofing contractors to offer additional warranties that non-certified "roofers" can't.
