There are no national licensing requirements for roofing contractors in the United States. Some states require roofing contractors to have roofing contractor licenses specifically, some states require roofing contractors to hold building contractor or home improvement licenses, and some states do not require roofing contractors to be licensed at all, and leave it up to local authorities.

Contractor licenses are generally only valid in the state where they were issued. If a roofing contractor does business in more than one state, they will need to register in each jurisdiction, and there will be a separate record in each place where they are permitted to operate.

The following links will take you to the official state web pages that explain the licensing requirements for roofing contractors in each state, as well as the pages where you can verify a contractor's license. In cases where no contractor license is required for roofing contractors, we provide a link that lets you verify a contractor's business license, so you can at least tell if a roofer has a valid license to do business. On many of these sites, after you've got your search results back, clicking on the contractor's name or license number will bring up more information about the contractor, such as how long they've been in business.
