National Roof Certification and Inspection Association National Roof Certification and Inspection Association


Since 1995, the NRCIA has become THE authority in LeakFREE® protection. Our name stands for excellence in property care: improving the way roofs are inspected and maintained so that there is no unexpected loss of property due to normal wear and tear. The association specializes in providing the real estate community with confidence that a LeakFREE roof protects their investment or asset for the duration of the LeakFREE roof certification period.

The NRCIA accomplishes this through:

1. Thoroughly training and certifying capable roof inspectors and roof contractors to use its patent-pending process to perform inspections to determine if a roof qualifies for a LeakFREE® Roof Certification, and

2. Proactively and reactively connecting the real estate community with NRCIA certified roof inspectors and contractors. 

In other words, the NRCIA connects you with the best possible roof inspector or contractor in your area to provide you with the greatest roof assurance in every real estate transaction.

Roof Inspection

Roof InspectionThe NRCIA is the leader in offering quality roof inspections from certified members. Having a roof inspection gives valuable insight into the health of your roof. After a thorough 1 hour inspection of the interior of the house, the attic, the perimter of the house, any attached garage and rooftop, then the inspector will create a detailed report specifying any necessary repairs with reliable estimation of cost. If there are not any necessary repairs, or after the repairs are made by a NRCIA Contractor, then the roof qualifies for a NRCIA Roof Certification.

Roof Certification

Roof CertificationNo other roof warranty beats NRCIA's LeakFREE® Roof Certification. Our warranty means that your roof will not leak for up to 5 years, or the contractor will do the repairs for free if the cause of the leak is from something missed in the inspection or from normal wear-and-tear. The NRCIA accomodates to you by making the certification renewable after the certification period expires and transferrable to new homeowners. 

Our LeakFREE® Certification provides professional assurance
