Texas Legislature recently introduced House Bill 3293 for consideration. While only just presented, this bill is gaining a lot of positive attention. According to Watchdog, the plan calls for a voluntary certification for any roofers who could register with the state. It wouldn't apply to new home construction or planned remodeling jobs, only to those roofers who swoop in during emergency situations, like after hail or high winds. Homeowners would use the state-created certification list as a starting point to find an honest company.
Here are some key points of the bill which are anticipated to begin in 2018:
While this new bill is a far cry from the reform that is truly needed in regard to Texas roofing and contracting, it is certainly a step in the right direction! House Bill 3293 is definitely catered toward consumers in the sense that credibility will be determined when hiring a private roofer or roofing company.
