It’s National Roofing Week! Did you know there is a whole week to highlight and celebrate the importance of roofs and professional roofing contractors in our country? Well, there is.
The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is one of the most respected trade associations in the construction industry. Being a member of this association, for a roofing company is the gold standard.
The NRCA is the voice of roofing contractors and professionals and has more than 3,500 members from all 50 states of the union, as well as from 53 other countries around the world. There are 97 local, state, regional and international roofing contractor associations who are also affiliated with the NRCA.
The companies associated with the NRCA are a diverse group, ranging from companies who have less than $1 million in sales per year up to companies who sell up to $20 million per year. Like Renovations Roofing & Remodeling, Inc. many of these contractors do both commercial and residential roofing.
History of the NRCA
The NRCA has been around since 1886. Most of the businesses involved with the organization have been around for over 20 years. This organization and the contracting companies affiliated with it are dedicated to enhancing every part of the roofing industry.
As a nonprofit organization, the NRCA represents every segment of the roofing industry and there are more of those than you may realize. This includes contractors, manufacturers, architects, distributors, consultants, building owners, engineers, and government agencies from counties, cities, and states. The NRCA helps us serve you better.
Dedicated to Raising Awareness
That’s why they dedicate a week to raising awareness every year. As part of this association, we want to send the message that roofs are important to any community. In addition, so are the decisions you make about your roofing system; how you maintain and replace your roof.
Think about it. So much of our lives revolve around having the proper shelter. In many cities around the world some of our most precious links to the past is our architecture. All of that is made possible by a good roof. And not just a good roof, but by reputable and responsible contractors and other roofing professionals who are experts on keeping your roofs and your buildings sound.

During National Roofing Week, NRCA hosts an annual children’s art contest, sponsored by A.C.T Metal Deck Supply and the International Roofing Expo® (IRE). If you are an NRCA member or employee, any child related to you is encouraged to submit their artwork for the contest.
