A new roof is an important investment, which is why you need to hire a qualified residential roofing contractor to install it. In this post, Royal Roofing Construction explains why you should limit your search for a contractor to credentialed roofers.
What is a Credentialed Roofing Contractor?
The terms “licensed” and “credentialed” are often used interchangeably, but they actually refer to very different things when it comes to roofing. A license is a permit that authorizes a roofer to perform roof work within a territory, such as city, state or county. Our roofing license was granted by the California Contractors State License Board (CSLB).
Credentials, on the other hand, are given to roofing contractors after completing specialized training courses or programs, and are issued by manufacturers and other reputable issuing bodies. In simple terms, a licensed contractor has permission to install roofs, while a credentialed contractor has the competency to install roofs.
