Re-Roofer Installer Certification Program

The Re-Roofer Installer Certification Program is a way of Training, Certifying and Qualifying Residential Metal Roofers in North America. This initiative was started by key players in the industry to better serve this wave of increasing demand for residential metal roofing. At Re-Roofer we know and understand why metal is fast becoming the new normal roofing in North America, we just want to share that information with Re-Roofers like you.


Our mission is to make as many Qualified and Certified Metal Roofers available to every homeowner or contractor who wants one. To help homeowners and contractors find a metal roofer that specializes in the best system that is best suited for their specific roofing wants and needs.

We train, organize, rate and follow-up on all Re-Roofer Installers for as long as you are part of the program. If we say a Certified Re-Roofer is rated a certain rating, we stand by the job done and use our influence to make sure what is right, is done, for the homeowner, the roofer and all related contractors, manufacturers and distributors.

We keep track of the training the Re-Roofer has completed through the Re-Roofer Dealer in each Re-Roofer County. A roofer with many roofs completed with few homeowner or contractor concern calls and zero unresolved concerns would get a very high rating. Even if a well rated roofer goes a little bad on you, we use all our influence to help that roofer do better.
