Forum Title: Roofing Contractor Consumer Protection Act
For some reason the Texas legislature just can not pass a roofing licensure law- someone tries every legislative session. So this year, they are trying to implement a voluntary registration data base under the authority of the Insurance Commissioner. It looks similar to the BBB. The bill requires all roofing contractors to disclose whether or not they carry insurance in their contracts. The penalty is the equivalent to a traffic ticket. The bill also forbids the infamous ?covering deductibles? on insurance claims. That is already illegal under insurance fraud laws. That is a jailable offense- class A misdemeanor. It is already illegal for a roofer to act as an insurance adjuster, so now it is also an offense under this bill. Again, the equivalent of a traffic ticket if you can prove it. I Don't know why, but in some states, a contractor?s license is a ticket to make money while in other states like Texas, it is every man for himself. I say for the buyer beware. Insurance is nothing but a racket.
