Roofing licensing?

Roofing licensing, when putting a tarp on a roof, or making small repairs to a roof require a state license and certification?

I would probably check with my state licensing board

Stay away from fools, for you won't find knowledge on their lips.

Every local is different. In some areas you can complete emergency roof repairs on property you do not own, and in others you can't walk thru the door without paying for a permit first.

In many states you need to be a licensed plumber to perform a winterization. Not that any one cares.

Huh? Based on the fact that I stated many states require licensing for winterizations?

Or the fact that the banks and nationals don't care? I can't control the banks and nationals. I sure wish I could.

We are licensed to do some things when we are not we hire the professionals who are. I just paid a guy $500.00 for an HVAC inspection because it had to be done by a licensed pro.

We try to follow all state and local guidelines. This makes it very hard to compete at times.

NJ requires a contractors license for any work on a residential property if you complete more than $500 (I think) worth of work per year or more. A permit is also required if you are replacing more than 50% of the roof. Patches and small repairs do not require permits.
