The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is one of the construction industry's most respected trade associations and the voice of roofing professionals and leading authority in the roofing industry for information, education, technology and advocacy. Founded in 1886, NRCA is a nonprofit association that represents all segments of the roofing industry, including contractors; manufacturers; distributors; architects; consultants; engineers; building owners; and county, city and state government agencies. NRCA's mission is to inform and assist the roofing industry, act as its principal advocate and help members in serving their customers. NRCA continually strives to enhance every aspect of the roofing industry.

NRCA has more than 3,600 members from all 50 states and 53 countries and is affiliated with 97 local, state, regional and international roofing contractor associations. NRCA contractor members range in size from companies with less than $1 million in annual sales volumes (50 percent of the current membership) to large, commercial contractors with annual sales volumes of more than $20 million.

NRCA ProCertification® Metal Roofing Development Survey

NRCA, in collaboration with the Metal Construction Association, is developing a new certification for workers who install metal roof systems. As a valued roofing professional, we are asking for your input about various tasks metal roof system installers perform. This is an excellent opportunity for you and your organization to provide feedback about the content for the newest NRCA ProCertification® credential.

As an added incentive, we will be holding a raffle for two $100 Visa gift cards that will be drawn randomly at the completion of the survey. Please complete the survey no later than June 21.

Take the Survey in English or Spanish!


NRCA Launches Supply Chain Shortage Information Webpage!

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the roofing industry in numerous ways, including leading to a widespread shortage of materials. The prices for materials have been increasing, and supply chains have been disrupted as lockdowns, tariffs and other factors cause delays and limited availability.

In response, NRCA has made available a Supply Chain Shortage Information webpage to help its members stay up to date with the latest news regarding materials shortages and price hikes in the industry.

The new page also houses a recording of NRCA’s April 22 Live Action Alert: Supply Chain Shortages, during which NRCA CEO Reid Ribble and NRCA Vice President of Technical Services Mark Graham discussed the materials shortage issue facing the roofing industry.

Visit the Supply Chain Shortage Information page

With NRCA’s group 401(k) plan, your employees reap the benefits, and you no longer carry all the responsibility and liability. Tasks you typically would handle yourself are managed by a third-party professional to reduce time spent on:

  • Administrative duties

  • Fiduciary responsibilities

NRCA Training

NRCA's award-winning Training for Roof Application Careers, that includes both English and Spanish content, is training your company can use to provide new and inexperienced field workers with information and skills to help them become quality roof system installers who thrive in their careers.

There currently are five packages available for purchase:

           Foreman Management Package provides knowledge on safety, customer service, quality, and productivity

TRAC ultimately will include each roof system. 


NRCA Pro-Certification

It’s now more convenient than ever for experienced workers to become NRCA ProCertified

Rather than passing an online exam for each type of roof system, installer applicants now only need to pass NRCA’s low-slope or steep-slope online knowledge exam, which can be taken anywhere, any time, as many times as needed.

Installers can even take the online exam before they apply for NRCA ProCertification to measure their readiness. Once installers pass the online exam, they are eligible to take the hands-on performance exam.

NRCA provides the resources installers need to help them on their paths to NRCA ProCertification, and all content is available in English and Spanish.

Have your workers Apply Here Today
