At Longhorn Roofing, we believe in constantly improving what we do. That’s why we’re starting 2022 as a member in good standing of the prestigious Roofing Contractors Association of Texas (RCAT). RCAT is the Lone Star State’s gold standard membership organization for those in the roofing profession.
The Best of the Best Texas Roofers Become Members of RCAT
Founded nearly four decades ago, the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas is a state-spanning trade association that unites roofing and waterproofing contractors under one banner. RCAT's ongoing advocacy ensures superior professional, educational, and ethical standards within these allied professions.
RCAT is made up of many different committees and specialty teams, which enable member companies like Longhorn Roofing to further develop their skills. Members have access to resources that include hundreds of hours of continuing education in a wide variety of roofing topics.
RCAT also exists to help homeowners and other consumers access quality services. When it comes to improving the roofing experience and stomping out scams, no other organization in Texas has been as active as RCAT. It even advises lawmakers at the state and local levels.
What the RCAT Licensed Roofing Contractor Program Means for You
The RCAT Licensed Roofing Contractor Program provides a rigorous process for roofing firms to show their commitment to excellence in all customer-facing areas of their business. RCAT licensure is not required for any Texas roofer – it is an additional step for those willing to go above and beyond.
