Licenses for Georgia Roofers

The bill to create licensed Georgia roofing contractors (House Bill 301) was dropped on day sixteen of the current Georgia legislative session. The bill has been assigned to the regulated industries committee.

This bill is intended to protect Georgia homeowners and businesses, who are
regularly victimized by fly by night roofers. Often from our neighboring states,
all of which have strict licensing requirements, they come to Georgia because our
lack of regulation allows them to prey on the unwary. After every natural disaster
in the state, whether a hurricane on the coast or the recent destructive tornado in
Adairsville, unqualified roofers descend on Georgia to take advantage of the
victims, making easy money doing shoddy work, or taking deposits and doing no
work at all.

This bill is crucial to the future of regulation in the roofing industry.
