Colorado Senate Bill 38 (SB38), the Consumer Protection/Residential Roofing Bill, was signed into law on June 6, 2012. Since that time, the Colorado Roofing Association (CRA) has received numerous requests for information regarding how the new law affects contractual interactions between residential roofing contractors and property owners.
CRA developed the following factsheet to inform you on the new law, new contract provisions and the penalties and protocol for reporting violations.
CRA followed this bill from the start, worked with both legislators and attorneys as the bill moved through the legislative process and has been answering questions based on that perspective. We are not offering legal advice, but can only inform the public of what we have been told by those close to the legislation.
The CRA is dedicated to EDUCATING both our members and consumers regarding the new roofing law. CRA is not a consumer agency nor will we “police” the new law – although we do ask consumers to contact us if they have a dispute with a CRA member.
CRA’s continued commitment is to promote the ethics, education, and image of the roofing industry throughout the State of Colorado. We do not have control over what contractors do with the new law, but can only continue to educate our members to adopt ethical business practices and urge consumers to make educated decisions.
