Now that we understand the importance of roof health, it is important to understand how the NRCIA’s processes are there to help improve the quality of roof checkups.


The industry rule for roof inspections has long been “free estimates.” However, the NRCIA is a strong advocate for paid professional proposals. The NRCIA’s credible and standardized inspection process ensures quality and reliability in the proposals. This new system benefits both inspectors and the real estate community in a variety of ways.


You can read about our breakdown between an estimate and a proposal in our article: “What is the difference between an estimate and a proposal?”


Additionally, the NRCIA has developed a quick guide to the benefits of proposals. You can download the printable version and web version to share with your colleagues, clients, and the roofing community.
