Residential Roofer Licensing Requirements

General licensing requirements The law requiring all residential roofers to be licensed became effective May 15, 1993. A residential roofer is defined as a person engaged in the business of doing work on residential real estate (one to four family dwellings, including detached garages) in roof coverings, roof sheathing, roof weatherproofing and insulation, and repair of roof systems, but not construction of new roof systems. The licensing program is administered by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. Residential roofers will be subject to all of the requirements of the Residential Building Contractor and Remodeler Licensing Law except that the amendments create a separate residential roofer license, bond and examination requirement. The licensing program requires only companies to obtain a license (in the case of an individual proprietorship, the proprietorship is licensed). However, each company must designate one individual who will serve as a "qualifying person," regardless of whether it is an individual proprietorship, partnership or corporation. The qualifying person is the individual who must take the required examination and fulfill the continuing education requirements. In the case of a sole proprietorship, the qualifying person must be the proprietor (owner) or a managing employee. For a partnership, the qualifying person must be a general partner or managing employee. For a corporation, the qualifying person must be a chief executive officer or managing employee. If the qualifying person is a managing employee, that person must be an employee who is regularly employed by the licensee and is actively engaged in the business of residential contracting or residential remodeling on behalf of the licensee.

Exemptions from licensure The following are exempt from the licensing requirements: • • • • employees of a licensed contractor, remodeler or roofer; material suppliers who no not install or attach the items; owners doing work on their own property; and residential roofers licensed by the city of Minneapolis performing work within the legal boundaries of this municipality.

Note: Any person claiming this exemption must obtain a Certificate of Exemption from residential roofer licensing from the Department of Labor and Industry by filing an affidavit stating the applicant does not expect to exceed $15,000 in gross annual receipts during the calendar year for which the exemption is requested. The exemption certificate must be renewed annually. After the person exceeds $15,000, the certificate of exemption must be immediately surrendered and application for a license must be filed.

License application process You can obtain the required license application at the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry by mail at 443 Lafayette Road N., St. Paul, MN 55155, by telephone at (651) 284-5065 or 1-800-342-5354. The license period for residential roofers is April 1 through March 31 each year. All licenses expire March 31 each year, whether the license is issued for all or a portion of the license period. To maintain an active license, all licenses must be renewed by March 31 each year. Applicants must answer all questions and provide all the required information on the application. Failure to answer any question or attach the required documents will result in the application being returned to the applicant.
RBC 14 (12/06) Page 1 of 4

All applications must include the following: • a license fee of $100 (Note: License fees for licenses issued for a portion of the license period cannot be prorated, for example, the license fees are $100 whether the license is obtained in April or in December.); roof that the qualifying person has passed the required examination; a certificate of liability insurance with limits of at least $100,000 per occurrence, which must include at least $10,000 property damage coverage (Note: The company name listed as the “insured” on the Certificate of Insurance must be identical to the company name listed on your license application. The “Certificate holder” section of the Certificate of Insurance must indicate: State of Minnesota, Department of Labor and Industry, 443 Lafayette Road N., St. Paul, MN 55155.); a Minnesota workers' compensation insurance certificate or a written explanation of why the applicant is exempt from workers’ compensation requirements. A Minnesota workers’ compensation insurance certificate is required for those who have employees who are not the spouse, parent or child of the owner. Applicants who have no employees and have no intention of hiring employees (other than spouse, parent or child) during the next year should attach a written explanation with the license application stating that they are exempt for this reason. If uncertain regarding the need for workers' compensation insurance contact the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry at (651) 284-5005 or 1-800-342-5354. Note: The company name listed as the “insured” on the Certificate of Insurance must be identical to the company name listed on your license application. The “Certificate holder” must indicate: State of Minnesota, Department of Labor and Industry, 443 Lafayette Road N., St. Paul, MN 55155; unemployment insurance or proof the applicant is exempt from unemployment insurance requirements. If uncertain regarding the need for unemployment insurance, contact the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development at (651) 296-6141; a bond in the amount of $5,000; information regarding the applicants organizational structure including names and addresses of officers, directors, shareholders, partners or employees who exercise management or policy control in the company.

License renewal process All licenses expire March 31 each year, whether the license is issued for all or a portion of the license period. The license period is April 1 through March 31 each year. To maintain an active license, all licenses must be renewed by March 31 each year, whether the license is issued for all or a portion of the license period. Licensees will be sent a renewal notice each year, in approximately mid-February, with instructions about how to renew a license.

Examination and continuing education requirements The company's qualifying person will be required to show proof they have passed the examination at the time of their application. A bulletin of information, providing further details about the examination, is available by contacting the Department of Labor and Industry. The company's qualifying person will be required to show proof that seven hours of approved continuing education has been completed within each license period to renew their license, whether the license is issued for all or a portion of the license period. (As an example, the qualifying person must obtain seven hours of approved continuing education within each license period whether the license was obtained in April or December.)

Page 2 of 4

At least one hour of the required credits for the licensee’s first license period must contain information about lead abatement rules and safe lead abatement procedures. At least one hour each license period must include information relating to the implementation of energy codes applicable to building and other building codes designed to conserve energy. Examination preparation courses do not qualify for continuing education credits. It should be noted the statute does not allow “carry forward” in relation to complying with the continuing education requirements. Therefore, each licensee will be required to complete seven hours of approved continuing education within each license period to renew its license. Approved continuing education courses will be available through technical colleges, trade associations, private schools and a number of other sources. A list of approved continuing education sponsors is available from the Department of Labor and Industry.

Assumed name filing information Any individual, corporation, partnership or limited partnership who is doing business in the state of Minnesota under a name other than the full name of each person involved in the business, or the legal corporate or partnership name, must file an assumed name. Examples: "John Smith Construction" would not be required to file if John Smith is the owner of the business. However, "Smith's Construction" would be required to file because it does not contain the full first and last name of the owner. Similarly, the legally incorporated company "ABC Construction" does not need to file an assumed name, because that is its legal corporate name. If an entity does business under any name other than the legal corporate name, an assumed name filing would be required. The reason for filing an assumed name is not to protect the name against use by other people, but to provide information to the consumer about the identity of the business owner. Applications for assumed name filings may be obtained from the Secretary of State online at www.sos.state.mn.us, by mail at 180 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155, or by telephone at (651) 296-2803. Return the completed and signed form to the Secretary of State, with the $25 filing fee.

Notification to department of any change The law requires that licensees notify the Department of Labor and Industry, in writing, of any change in control, ownership, officers or directors, business name, license name, qualifying person, address, telephone number, or any changes to liability and property damage insurance information within 15 business days of the change.

Advertising The law requires that the license number be on all business cards, contracts and all other advertising, including: signs, vehicles, published display ads, fliers and brochures. The law does not require a specific size print or location for the license number.

Penalties for violating the law A person who is required to be licensed, who performs unlicensed work as a residential roofer, is guilty of a misdemeanor. An unlicensed person who knowingly violates the law has no right to claim a lien under section 514.01 and the lien is void. Individuals engaging in unlicensed activity, misrepresentation or fraud are subject to administrative and civil penalties.

Page 3 of 4

City, county or township requirements The license number of a residential roofer must be placed on all building permits and building permit applications made to or issued by the state or a political subdivision. In jurisdictions that have not adopted the state building code, the license number must be placed on the site plan review or zoning permit. A political subdivision may not issue a building permit or zoning permit to an unlicensed residential roofer who is required to be licensed, and must report any such person applying for a building or zoning permit to the department, which may initiate disciplinary action against the unlicensed residential roofer. A political subdivision may charge for building, zoning permits and other costs not directly related to licensure. In addition, political subdivisions may impose up to a $5 surcharge on each permit for the purpose of license verification.
