National Roof Certification and Inspection Association

In 1995, the National Roof Certification and Inspection Association (NRCIA) was born out of the evolution of the home inspection industry and its eventual standard to refer and defer any roof damage to a certified roofer. Today, the NRCIA has become THE authority in LeakFREE® roof protection by leading the industry in roof inspections and certifications.

Roof Certifications

The NRCIA is the only national authority to standardize and regulate the roof certification, and only NRCIA members can provide the LeakFREE® roof certification guarantee. Our LeakFREE® roof certification is designed specifically to serve and protect the public, ensuring that the entire roof — not just the repair site — will remain leak-free for the full duration of the certification period. Find out more about what makes our certification so special and why you should only hire an NRCIA member to prepare your roof certification.

Roof Inspections

The NRCIA is the industry leader in offering quality roof inspections to determine if the roof meets NRCIA certification criteria. Your NRCIA inspector will arrive at your appointment on time and will happily wear booties to protect your home. They will conduct a thorough five-zone inspection of the property’s interior, attic, perimeter, attached garage, and rooftop, and take numerous photographs of any evidence of roof damage or leaks. The inspector will then create a detailed report with complete photographs within 24-48 hours.
