TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – The state attorney general’s office is reminding Kansas residents of a new resource for making sure that roofing contractors are legitimate businesses.

Legislators approved the Kansas Roofing Contractor Registration Act in 2013. The law requires every contractor that charges for commercial or residential roofing to obtain a registration certificate from the attorney general’s office.

The law took effect on July 1 of last year. Attorney General Derek Schmidt says that 700 roofers had registered as of Monday.

With the start of the spring storm season, Schmidt urged homeowners needing roof repairs to request a copy of a contractor’s registration certificate and check it against an online directory kept by his office.

Lawmakers created the registry to help protect consumers from untrustworthy and uninsured roofers.
