There’s No License To Be A Roofer in Georgia

Dec 12, 2023

In Georgia, particularly in the metro Atlanta area, installing roofs does not require a state-issued license. This fact might come as a surprise to many, especially considering the significant investment involved in roofing projects, with the average cost hovering around $16,000.

No Licensing Requirement Impacts You

Licensing in various professions serves as a mark of trust and quality. For instance, when you visit a hair stylist, you often see their license displayed, assuring you of their qualifications for the service they provide. This kind of reassurance is unfortunately absent in the roofing industry in Georgia.

Navigating the Unregulated Market

In such an unregulated market, the burden of ensuring quality falls on the customer. The best way to guarantee a quality roofing job in Georgia is to secure a manufacturer warranty. This approach is highly recommended, considering the lack of licensing for roofers in the state.

Partnering with Reputable Manufacturers

Companies like Roofing Done Right have partnered with well-known manufacturers like Owens Corning, famous for the Pink Panther icon, to ensure quality and reliability. Such partnerships are critical, especially since the warranty and workmanship offered by these manufacturers safeguard your investment in roofing.

The Owens Corning Advantage

Owens Corning, a billion-dollar company with a nationwide presence, offers a comprehensive warranty when you work with their partners. For instance, Roofing Done Right offers a 50-year warranty, including 25 years of workmanship. This warranty is directly registered and comes to you, the homeowner, ensuring long-term protection.

Audits and Quality Checks

To maintain high standards, Owens Corning conducts random annual audits of the roofs installed by their partners. This process includes on-site inspections to ensure that the workmanship aligns with their high standards.

The Role of Customer Service

Customer service is paramount, both for roofing companies and manufacturers like Owens Corning. Partnering with third-party companies like Guild Quality allows customers to view and assess the quality of services based on feedback from other homeowners.

Protecting Your Investment

The warranty covers 25 years of workmanship, meaning any issues, regardless of the cause, are addressed without additional cost. Following this period, a labor and material warranty covers any defects for the next 25 years, summing up to a total of 50 years of protection. This warranty is also transferable, adding value to your property.

The Risks of Not Having a Warranty

Without a manufacturer’s warranty, homeowners in Georgia face significant risks. Roofing companies might cut corners or install roofs improperly, leading to a reduced lifespan and potential leaks within a few years. In such cases, without a warranty, homeowners have little to no recourse.

A Cautionary Note

Homeowners often face challenges with poorly installed roofs, some of which start leaking within a few years of installation. The absence of a regulatory body in Georgia means that many such companies may not even exist when problems arise, leaving the homeowner with no support.


In Georgia, the lack of a licensing requirement for roofers puts a considerable onus on homeowners to ensure the quality and longevity of their roofing. Partnering with reputable companies and securing a solid manufacturer warranty is not just advisable; it’s essential. This approach not only assures quality workmanship but also provides a safety net in an otherwise unregulated market.
