KRCA is the Kentucky Roofing Contractors Association founded in 1964 to increase the professionalism of the roofing industry in Kentucky. It is KRCA’s mission to increase the professionalism of the roofing industry by making sure their members subscribe to a code of ethics that combines honest business procedures with detailed, reliable, standards, and first-rate workmanship.
There is no licensing of roofing contractors in either Kentucky or Indiana. Anyone who can afford a pickup truck and a ladder can claim to be a roofing contractor, so it’s caveat emptor – buyer beware!
The Kentucky Roofing Contractors Association (KRCA) has stepped up to the plate and developed the KRCA Certified Contractors Program. This gives consumers an easy and objective way to know if a contractor meets some pretty strict minimum standards.
A KRCA Certified Contractor is certified to be insured and bonded, agrees to the KRCA Code of Ethics, and participates in continuing education.
A KRCA Certified Contractor demonstrates a commitment to professionalism in the roofing industry. Our members stay abreast of professional methods and are aware of the compliance standards within the industry. Roofing projects completed by an unprofessional roofer may lead to serious problems that can be avoided when using a Certified Roofing Contractor.
All KRCA Certified Contractors have a permanent place of business, telephone listing, and a tax identification number so that they can be contacted if a question or concern arises about the roofing project at hand.
All KRCA Certified Contractors must complete ten credits of continuing education a year to remain certified. KRCA’s commitment to education ensures that all members stay ahead of the curve with new industry products and procedures.
All KRCA certified professionals must have a minimum $1,000,000 liability insurance policy and be bonded. A qualified roofing contractor knows the dangers of their profession and the property value at hand. Being properly insured is a must for any professional roofing contractor.
KRCA encourages safe working environments and provides safety training programs to all of its members.
The KRCA recognizes the importance of a skilled roofer, so much so that the fair treatment of all employees is part of their Code of Ethics. Employing trained, full-time, roofing craftsmen is an essential part of any professional roofing business.
The KRCA is a member of, and works closely with the Better Business Bureau and is an affiliate of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). All KRCA Certified members must provide evidence of insurance and are monitored by a “Consumer Complaint” procedure.
