Not all states require a roofer contractor to have a license—Texas is one of them—unless you have a specialty trade such as electrical or live in certain cities. However, roofers are required to have general liability insurance. With so many differing regulations it is easy to see how a roofing professional can miss the mark, legally speaking.
Why Roofing Professionals Need a Roofing Attorney in Texas
Without an understanding of the roofing laws and regulations that apply to you as a roofing professional, you could end up paying a price for ignorance or willfully failing to comply. Furthermore, you place yourself at risk for claims, contract breaches, and other violations. Roofers need access to a roofing lawyer in Texas with a thorough understanding of roofing law and can provide aggressive defense against claims and represent them during a litigation.
