Georgia Roofing Contractors and the State Licensing Process

Unlike some states, the state of Georgia does not require a roofing license per se for a business or a contractor to work on a residential home roof. That said, a business working from out-of-state must least be registered with the Georgia Secretary of State if a corporation. Any roofing business or contractor must at least have a professional license from the same state agency to be able to legally take on building or construction permits for projects.

The requirements for the professional license include simply taking a state license exam and paying the requisite exam fee. However, there are a number of steps involved in the application itself.

Applicants will be required to pay a nonrefundable charge of $200 with the application for it to be processed. Applicants need to be at least 21 years of age, be of good moral character and have either four years of work experience in the construction industry that can be documented or a four-year college degree. A combination of experience and college courses can be substituted as well. Those applying with the education criteria must provide a sealed school transcript proving academic performance. The application also requires applicants to submit permission for a civil background check by the state as well.

Finally, contractors will need to show documentation that proves bonded insurance that covers contractual risk up to $500,000 and proof of having a workers compensation policy in place for hired help. This only applies where the applicant is a business employing others to do the work. If the contractor performs all the work himself, the workers compensation policy is not required.

It should be noted that much of the above criteria is fairly new for the state of Georgia. These legal changes are in response to a significant push for tighter requirements on Georgia contractors to make sure that valid, legitimate contractors have work in the state and consumers are not harmed by unscrupulous individuals or parties not intending to fully follow through on their contracted work.
