Because there is no requirement for licensing for roofing contractors in Kentucky, more than 10 years ago, KRCA developed contractor certification. This is a non-governmental way to assure homeowners that a certified contractor meets certain standards that verify the company is not only trustworthy, but willing to cover the necessary bases to protect the homeowner. Lexington Blue® is one of just four roofers in Lexington, KY that meet the qualifications & hold this certification.
These qualifications include….
• Insured with minimum $1 million business liability and
workers’ compensation insurance
• Bonded with a $10,000 judgment bond
• Committed to the KRCA Code of Ethics
• Participating in extensive continuing education
KRCA Certified Contractors operate their businesses with the highest level of integrity. The goal of the KRCA is “to provide consumers with the best roofers in the industry.” Therefore, Certified Contractors must operate under the KRCA Code of Ethics. These stipulations hold the contractor accountable to standards that further provide homeowners with the peace of mind they should have when hiring a roofing contractor. The agreements made include promises such as constantly seeking to provide the best possible value to the consumer, to never engage in any fraudulent activities, to abide by all safety standards and regulations, and to honestly explain any and all roofing warranties.
Similar to holding certifications from the major roofing materials manufacturers, these are standards that any roofer should hold themselves to, but to be certified and held accountable by a highly trusted source such as KRCA can provide an extra when hiring a roofing contractor.
