1. General: See Contractor Associations. Contractor association websites provide a wealth of roofing resources, including lists of their members. Most contractor associations have professional ethics requirements for their members, which makes them a pretty good place to start if you’re looking for a contractor. Members tend to be larger roofing companies who are more typically focused on commercial roofing, so they may not always be the best place to find a roofer for smaller residential jobs.

2. General: The “Roofers” page at the US Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook provides the information you might expect.

3. General: “Choosing a Professional Roofer” is the best you can get from a manufacturer. Article available on the CertainTeed website. 

4. Contracts: The Levelset website provides state-by-state information about US mechanics lien and lien waiver rules.

5. Licensing: To verify a roofing contractor’s license, and to find out the roofing contractor licensing requirements in your state, see Roof Online’s Roofing Contractor Licensing and License Verification page.
