Roofing Contractor Licensing Checks

There are several checks you can make about a roofing contractor’s licensing. The contractor should be licensed by the City of Calgary to conduct business in the city.

For added assurance of legitimacy, you should check whether the contractor is a member of the Better Business Bureau and check the contractor’s rating on the BBB website.

If the contractor is asking for a deposit on the work to be done, there are more serious roofing contractor licensing requirements by the Alberta government. This type of contractor is considered a “Prepaid Contractor” and must get a Prepaid Contractor’s License and post security. Additionally, they must meet the requirements of the Fair Trading Act and provide you with a detailed written contract.
