September, 2008– There are 1,340 local roofing contractors listed on YellowPages.com. There are over 100,000 articles in Google to help you find one.
According to one article about how to select an Atlanta Roofing Contractor, “Georgia doesn’t hold roofing contractors to any particular standards or require them to be licensed” making it tricky to find a good one.
That’s not the whole picture. Here’s the 2008 policy regarding Georgia Contractor licenses. Excerpt: Re-Roofing of Existing Structures. The following are allowable categories of work which may be completed or coordinated by a Re-Roofing Limited Service Specialty Contractor:
â€¢ Rooftop Equipment â€¢ Demolition â€¢ Remediation
You may be required to hold a contractor license if your company exceeds this scope of work. See here for more details State Licensing Board for Residential and General Contractors. All work must be done according to local code and ordinances.
