The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is one of the construction industry's most respected trade associations and the voice of roofing professionals and leading authority in the roofing industry for information, education, technology and advocacy. Founded in 1886, NRCA is a nonprofit association that represents all segments of the roofing industry, including contractors; manufacturers; distributors; architects; consultants; engineers; building owners; and county, city and state government agencies. NRCA's mission is to inform and assist the roofing industry, act as its principal advocate and help members in serving their customers. NRCA continually strives to enhance every aspect of the roofing industry.

NRCA has more than 3,600 members from all 50 states and 53 countries and is affiliated with 97 local, state, regional and international roofing contractor associations. NRCA contractor members range in size from companies with less than $1 million in annual sales volumes (50 percent of the current membership) to large, commercial contractors with annual sales volumes of more than $20 million. More than half perform both residential and commercial roofing work, and more than one-third have been in business for more than a quarter of a century.

NRCA Launches Supply Chain Shortage Information Webpage!

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the roofing industry in numerous ways, including leading to a widespread shortage of materials. The prices for materials have been increasing, and supply chains have been disrupted as lockdowns, tariffs and other factors cause delays and limited availability.

In response, NRCA has made available a Supply Chain Shortage Information webpage to help its members stay up to date with the latest news regarding materials shortages and price hikes in the industry.

The new page also houses a recording of NRCA’s April 22 Live Action Alert: Supply Chain Shortages, during which NRCA CEO Reid Ribble and NRCA Vice President of Technical Services Mark Graham discussed the materials shortage issue facing the roofing industry.

Visit the Supply Chain Shortage Information page

During the three-day learning experience, you will receive 13 hours of in-depth information about current legal, contractual, technical and business programming.

NRCA Training

There currently are five packages available for purchase:

           Foreman Management Package provides knowledge on safety, customer service, quality, and productivity

TRAC ultimately will include each roof system. 


NRCA Pro-Certification

It’s now more convenient than ever for experienced workers to become NRCA ProCertified

Rather than passing an online exam for each type of roof system, installer applicants now only need to pass NRCA’s low-slope or steep-slope online knowledge exam, which can be taken anywhere, any time, as many times as needed.

Installers can even take the online exam before they apply for NRCA ProCertification to measure their readiness. Once installers pass the online exam, they are eligible to take the hands-on performance exam.

NRCA provides the resources installers need to help them on their paths to NRCA ProCertification, and all content is available in English and Spanish.

Have your workers Apply Here Today
