How to obtain State Roofing License and become Licensed Roofing Contractor in the State of Illinois

In the state of Illinois under the Illinois Roofing Industry Licensing Act, all contractors offering roof construction services must obtain a license from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) before engaging in any work.

In order to obtain said 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.

State of Illinois: Roofing License

The limited license comes in three different forms: Residential, Commercial/Industrial, and Unlimited.  Unlimited gives the roofing contractor the option to work on residential, commercial and industrial roofs right away.  If you apply for just a Residential license, you will need to wait 1 year before applying for the Commercial/Industrial license.  For that reason, we recommend roofing contractors apply for the Unlimited license, which gives you the opportunity to take any kind of roofing work in Illinois.  The Residential license exam consists of 80 questions within a 90 minute time limit. The Unlimited license allows consists of 130 questions and a 2.5 hour time limit.
