Illinois Roofing Contractor License

Illinois State Roofing Exam Preparation Course

According to the Illinois Roofing Industry Licensing Act, all contractors offering roof construction services must obtain a license from the Department of Professional Regulation before engaging in any work. In order to obtain the license each contractor must undergo a rigorous examination designed to reflect current standards and practices utilized by the roofing industry. This roofing test comes in a few different forms depending on the types of the buildings you intend to service.

The limited license comes in two different forms: the residential and the commercial/industrial. The limited license roofing test consists of 75 questions that must be answered within a 90 minute time limit. The unlimited license allows work to be conducted for both residential and commercial/industrial roofing projects and consists of 125 questions and a 2.5 hour time limit.

If you’re planning on filing an application for an exam and license, be aware that you must provide proof of liability insurance as well as workers compensation and unemployment insurances (if you have employees).
