Steven Badger Interviewed Regarding Voluntary Certification Program for TX Roofers

March 27, 2017

Steven Badger, a partner in the Dallas office of Zelle, was interviewed by CBS11 in Dallas for a news segment titled “Roofing Legislation Calls For Voluntary Certification System.”

Recent North Texas storms caused plenty of damage and residents are trying to get their roofs repaired without being ripped off by bad roofers.

Texas is the only Gulf state that has zero roofing regulations, but a new bill being considered by state lawmakers could change that. Texas State Representative Giovanni Capriglione of Keller has introduced legislation calling for a voluntary certification system. Roofers would have to register with the state and maintain insurance to make the list.

Badger says the problem is an “epidemic” in Texas right now. “Right now there is absolutely nothing. There is no protection for Texas consumers from getting ripped off from these contractors.”
