Why did your organization become a CRRC member?
NRCA has been involved with the CRRC since 1998. NRCA attended the CRRC's original organizational meeting and participated in setting up its committees. It was important for the roofing industry to have an independent roofing-focused organization like the CRRC and for roofing contractors be involved in its mission from the start. That's why NRCA became a member.
How has CRRC membership been of value to you / your organization?
NRCA sees value in exchange of information using the CRRC as a forum, representing the vote of roofing professionals when electing CRRC directors and in the CRRC continuing its mission. Roofing contractors install reflective roof covering materials and need to be confident the products meet established levels of performance. The CRRC provides a recognized means for reporting and labeling radiative properties roofing contractors can rely on.
