Inspection?  Attend this important one-hour session designed for the design community, contractors as well as building officials to learn how to specify cedar roofing products properly, understand which material is appropriate for each project, learn to evaluate costs and also learn to recognize proper installations or those that aren’t.

Workforce Recruitment, Retention and Development – Finding and Keeping Your Labor Force Now: The recession of 2007-2008 drained the construction industry of a lot of talent. People found new work in other industries or retired.  Whether a roofing contractor, roofing consultancy, design company or building department, we all have challenges finding and keeping staff to replace the talent that left. Critical issues in recruiting and retaining workers for your business will be covered.

Roof Replacement Process and Design Liability: Ever involved in specifying a roof replacement for a building owner without a licensed professional? Roofing accounts for a big percentage of construction litigation while it gets little attention due to being ‘out of sight, out of mind’.  Hear from a panel of a roof consultant specifier, roofing contractor, and roofing specialist lawyer about possible liability in the roof replacement process. From Roofing specifications to installation and inspection, they’ll cover issues that will keep you out of court.

Registration opens in November. Stay up to date by visiting the CRCA Trade Show page.
