The New Brunswick Roofing Contractors Association (NBRCA) is dedicated to maintaining and promoting exceptional roofing practices, the safe delivery of quality roofing systems, and the protection of the public’s interest related to low slope roofing applications. Our members are professional roofing contractors, manufacturers, suppliers, consultants, and quality assurance observers.
Founded in 1969, NBRCA contractor members, supported by associate, consultant, and observer members, and by well-trained and highly skilled employees, have installed more than four out of five roofs in the commercial, industrial and institutional sectors.
The NBRCA is affiliated with the Canadian Roofing Contractors’ Association (CRCA) and the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) in the U.S. We are an advocacy group on roofing issues on behalf of our members, the industry and the general public. We participate on advisory committees for many construction industry and government agencies.
Membership in the New Brunswick Roofing Contractors Association is based on the successful completion of an extensive screening and qualifying process. Applicants are screened for business and technical expertise, financial stability and their history of providing professional service to customers and clients.
There are three types of NBRCA members:
- Associates (material manufacturers and suppliers, as well as associated service providers); and
Choosing a roofing contractor for an installation, maintenance or repair services can be a challenging task. Some consider this a simple job, and it sometimes is, but not often. The consequences of incorrect roofing installation, maintenance, or repair by untrained, or unqualified, contractors and tradesmen can be expensive and catastrophic.
NBRCA contractor members must also be members of the CRCA, and CRCA contractor members resident in New Brunswick must be members of the NBRCA. Before hiring a roofing contractor, ask for proof of membership in the NBRCA – your assurance that you are dealing with a qualified professional.
