Licensing requirements for contractors vary greatly from city to city and from state to state. Some have no requirements at all, leaving anyone with a hammer and a ladder instantly in the roofing business, some cities require limited testing at the local level before issuing a license, and some require that contractors pass a test approved by the International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO) or Block and Associates.
Midwest Roofing representatives have taken and passed the roofing unlimited test administered by Block and Associates, qualifying us to roof any thing, anywhere, and we have also taken and passed residential roofing tests approved by (ICBO). Check with your local building officials and see what they require and hire accordingly. Even if the city has no requirements don’t be foolish. Your home is your biggest investment, don’t hire someone with limited knowledge and experience to repair it.
