Due to the rising demand of the real estate community, the association began in 1995 as the National Roof Certification Association® for the purpose of developing the standards and code of ethics for which a roof certification could be issued. On Januray 10th, 2002, the United States Government granted the rights to NRCIA to issue LeakFREE® Roof Certifications. In 2001, the association licensed the rights to the patent pending process of inspecting and certifying a roof to be sustainable and remain LeakFREE® for a certification period. At that time, the association changed its charter and name to include inspections, thus becoming the National Roof Certification and Inspection Association (NRCIA).
In 2007, we re-launched the organization to include all facets of roof certification, inspection and repair as the NRCIA to provide the standards nationwide. With the momentum of success behind us, our vision to provide a solid, longterm solution to the scattered and unregulated roofing industry has now become a reality. Our members are the top roofers and inspectors in their regions, who undergo training in our certification and inspection protocols. Their commitment to the NRCIA standards assures buyers, sellers, agents, banks and insurance companies that when they receive a LeakFREE® Roof Certification, they will have the confidence that their asset is protected.
