NRCA ProCertification® Metal Roofing Development Survey

NRCA, in collaboration with the Metal Construction Association, is developing a new certification for workers who install metal roof systems. As a valued roofing professional, we are asking for your input about various tasks metal roof system installers perform. This is an excellent opportunity for you and your organization to provide feedback about the content for the newest NRCA ProCertification® credential.

As an added incentive, we will be holding a raffle for two $100 Visa gift cards that will be drawn randomly at the completion of the survey. Please complete the survey no later than June 21.

Take the survey in English or Spanish!


NRCA Launches Supply Chain Shortage Information Webpage!

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the roofing industry in numerous ways, including leading to a widespread shortage of materials. The prices for materials have been increasing, and supply chains have been disrupted as lockdowns, tariffs and other factors cause delays and limited availability.

In response, NRCA has made available a Supply Chain Shortage Information webpage to help its members stay up to date with the latest news regarding materials shortages and price hikes in the industry.

The new page also houses a recording of NRCA’s April 22 Live Action Alert: Supply Chain Shortages, during which NRCA CEO Reid Ribble and NRCA Vice President of Technical Services Mark Graham discussed the materials shortage issue facing the roofing industry.

Visit the Supply Chain Shortage information page.

There currently are five packages available for purchase:

TRAC ultimately will include each roof system. 


NRCA Pro-Certification

It’s now more convenient than ever for experienced workers to become NRCA ProCertified. Rather than passing an online exam for each type of roof system, installer applicants now only need to pass NRCA’s low-slope or steep-slope online knowledge exam, which can be taken anywhere, any time, as many times as needed. Installers can even take the online exam before they apply for NRCA ProCertification to measure their readiness. Once installers pass the online exam, they are eligible to take the hands-on performance exam. NRCA provides the resources installers need to help them on their paths to NRCA ProCertification, and all content is available in English and Spanish.

Have your workers apply today! 

For additional information, contact Brad Martz, NRCA’s services sales manager, at (800) 323-9545, ext. 7574, or bmartz@nrca.net.


NRCA Metal Panel Roof Pro-Certification

Experienced installers who demonstrate substantial skills and knowledge of metal panel roof systems now can apply to become NRCA ProCertified® Metal Panel Roof Systems Installers.

Give your company a significant competitive advantage and your roofing workers the national recognition they deserve!
