NRCA has been the professional voice of its members since 1886. With more than 3,600 members, NRCA is the leading authority in the roofing industry for information, education, technical assistance, advocacy, publications, programs and support that help your business grow.
One of the most widely recognized technical publications in the U.S. roofing industry has been updated to include The NRCA Roofing Manual: Architectural Metal Flashing, Condensation and Air Leakage Control, and Reroofing—2014!

The March issue features a look at why it is vital nailers be properly designed and installed; how physics can disprove
an urban legend about moisture accumulation in cool roofs; a major reroofing project at Dumbarton Oaks estate,
Washington, D.C.; laws governing retainage for construction projects around the U.S.; a new type of insurance policy
designed for roofing contractors; and a recap of recent changes to the International Code Council's model codes.
