Roofing contractors must register

MOORE — The Construction Industries Board is reminding Oklahoma homeowners and business owners to verify a roofing contractor’s registration is in good standing before hiring for roofing work. Properly registered roofing contractors are required to renew their registration by June 30. If they did not, their status was changed to “not in good standing.” Second letters were mailed to those who did not, notifying them they must renew by August 30 or their status would change to “suspended.”

Not only is a roofing contractor required to be registered, the status of the registration must be in good standing before engaging in roofing contractor work. A person may not engage in the roofing business nor act in the capacity of a roofing contractor without a valid Oklahoma roofing contractor registration.

Before soliciting, advertising, signing contracts, and acting as a roofing contractor, a roofing worker must be registered; and, plumbing, electrical and mechanical workers must be licensed in Oklahoma. There may be exceptions in the law, provided on CIB’s web page, ok.gov/cib. State license or registration numbers are required on all vehicles, bids, proposals and advertisements.

“Property owners need to be vigilant and protect themselves and their property by obtaining current information on roofing contractors. Verifying roofing registration is an important and easy step toward reducing the risk of ‘let the buyer beware’,” says Janis Hubbard, CIB Administrator. Consumers should verify a contractor’s CIB license or registration at ok.gov/cib, or 405-521-6550.

Additional information is available at the CIB’s website at ok.gov/cib and 521-6550.
