There is no roofing license in Georgia at this time, but they are looking at creating one in the future.

Re: Does GA Require A Roofing License?


I am from Florida and trying to get a roofing license in GA as I am relocating to this location. Since no roofing license is needed in GA do I need a residential basic license? Or is Roofing currently still a specialty exempt trade in GA..

Basically all I need is a LLC , standard business license, insurance etc and I can roof in GA?

Another thing if they do require a roofing license in the future, would I be grandfathered in if I’m already operating the trade? Or is every roofer forced to take a exam.

Thanks.

So is roofing exempt it has “Shingles and Shakes”
I’m getting mixed into the only thing I found was from 2008 a article said that roofing was exempt not sure if it’s changed ... but I figured I’d see “roofing” rather than “Shingles and shakes”

GA sounds like my state (OH), no license required, you do need insurance and a bond, and register with the city you're doing the work in.
