Texans need roofs. Well, really every homeowner needs a roof, but of course that includes Texas residents. I can’t confirm that roofs are bigger in Texas, but due to a climate that can be rough on a house, the need for a high quality roof is certainly bigger in the Lonestar State. So, if you want a high quality Texas roof, you’ll need a high quality Texas roofing company.

Therefore, here’s what you’ll need to know about some of the roofing companies serving Texas. However, if you’re ready to start your roofing project already head over here to get up to four free quotes from roofing companies in your town.

Licensed Roofing Companies

Like any home improvement or repair project, you should find a licensed roofing company to perform the work. Finding a licensed roofing professional ensures that the roofing company knows what it is doing and keeps you and your home safe from con artists. You can find a list of Texas roofing companies licensed by the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas here. In order to be licensed, roofing companies must prove that they have been operating in Texas for at least three years. Also, applicants must pass a licensing exam to prove that they have the technical and business knowledge to provide quality roofing work.

In addition to business acumen, the RCAT conducts other checks to ensure a Texas roofing company is on the up and up. Among these are credit checks, reference interviews, insurance checks and a background check of the business purveyor. Finally, a licensed roofing contractor must prove he or she is familiar with all required safety and regulatory roofing laws. Roofer companies must also recertify every two years to prove they’re up-to-date on their industry’s requirements. There are different certifications for residential and commercial roofing companies, so make sure the company you choose is certified for your type of job.

Once you’ve found a licensed roofing company, you should check their reviews from past customers. While a licensing program can show a roofing company’s competence and experience, reviews will give you a better idea of the company’s customer service.

Feel free to browse our directory of Texas roofing companies and check out the reviews previous customers have left for them. For example, Joe L left this five-star review for Discount Roofing:

“The owner of Discount Roofing is honest in his advertisements that he works alongside his crew and not subcontracting it out. I was in the process of put my home on the market in the month of May with all the rain not sure how he pulled it off. Discount roofing was contacted on a Monday after a weekend of pouring rain when I discovered two leaks in the roof on Sunday. There was a slight break in the weather on Friday of that week and they arrive at the house at 11:00am removed shingles, vents and re-roof the 25 squares and completed that day at 7:00pm. Discount roofing has also given the home owners of my new house a quote to replace there roof before move-in.”

Tyler, Texas-based roofing company All of TX Roofing, received this five star review from Linda M:

“Great experience. Always on time and work is great. Owners and crew could not have been better and when they left my yard was so clean you could not tell they were even there. Highly recommend.”

It’s enough of a headache worrying about a hole in your roof while your home is being worked on. Knowing ahead of time that the roofing company you select can get your job done in a timely manner without leaving a mess behind can help alleviate some potential mental anguish.

Finally, Jeffrey A praised Elegant Roofing & Remodeling, LLC’s professionalism during his job:

“Absolutely fabulous. I've worked with contractors for years and this has been my best experience to date. Extremely responsive and professional, considerate of my time and availability. I would highly recommend them to anyone.”
