License Texas General Contractors & Roofers

This petition had 4 supporters

Texas does not currently license roofers, general contractors, restoration companies, insurance appraisers or umpires.  Right now, a criminal who lives outside of the US with no experience can technically operate in any of these roles.  

Skills and trustworthiness should not be optional.   Deceptive advertising, fake licensing and aggressive sales tactics should not be permitted.

We are in favor of...


  • Background Checks
  • Testing
  • Continuing Education
  • Requiring insurers to pay overhead and profit on all claims.
  • Reduction of unnecessary litigation
  • General Contractor or Roofer's company name on all insurance checks
  • Reciprocity with other states that currently license GC's and Roofers.


Far too many unsuspecting consumers misplace trust with unscrupulous roofers and general contractors that can lead to theft, poor workmanship, insurance fraud, and unnecessary litigation.

Help us protect the consumer. Join the concerned citizens as well as the legitimate general contractors and roofers whose businesses are based in Texas and support licensing.
