I am a constituent writing to encourage you to support HB 2101/SB 1168, which would implement statewide mandatory registration for reroofing contractors in the state of Texas to stop the widespread roofing fraud that affects hardworking Texans each year.
After a storm passes through, thousands of Texans fall victim to roofing scams, costing them hundreds to thousands of dollars. These scammers are often difficult to spot and flock into our communities to take advantage of our trusting and unsuspecting neighbors. What’s more, Texas has not implemented ANY protections in the reroofing industry to safeguard residents against this unsafe and costly problem.
The introduction of mandatory registration is a solution all Texans can get behind. This framework provides Texans basic protection against bad actors by ensuring scammers can be tracked down and taken to court if necessary, while not slowing down needed repairs and work in the reroofing industry.
I urge you to support HB 2101/SB 1168 and the implementation of mandatory registration for reroofing contractors in our state as a commonsense solution that safeguards hardworking Texans.
Thank you for your time,
