About Nebraska Roofing
Be it renovations, repairs or a full-blown installation, Nebraska has fully licensed (a state requirement) roofers who can be part of multiple trade associations--such as the Midwest Roofing Contractors Association and the Omaha Roofing Contractors Association--to enhance professionalism
Typical Climate in Nebraska
As a Midwest plains state, Nebraska has a highly variable continental climate. The state's central region sees an annual average temperature of 50 degrees, with a low of 22 degrees in January and a high of 76 degrees in July. The state sees everything from blizzards to windstorms and droughts during the year, and precipitation varies from Nebraska's semiarid panhandle (17 inches a year on average) to the southeast (30 inches annually). Similarly, snowfall varies from 21 inches a year in the Southeast to more than double that in the Northwest, a byproduct of the nearby Rocky Mountains.
Common Roofing Issues in Nebraska
The widely varying weather in Nebraska presents a host of different roofing problems in the state. As part of the Midwest's Tornado Alley, the possibility for wind damage is significant. In a given early-spring week, mid-Nebraska can see tornadoes, high winds and heavy thunderstorms. These circumstances can bring damage from loss of roof coverings to uplift to, in severe circumstances, the destruction of entire roofing sections.
Licensing in Nebraska
All contractors doing business in counties with a population of 100,000 or more in the state of Nebraska need a license to do business. Nonresident contractors doing business in Nebraska must register with the Nebraska Secretary of State and the Nebraska Department of Revenue. All contractors, however, are required to be registered with the state.

ENERGY STAR lists one roofing partner in Nebraska, Behlen Manufacturing Co. in Columbus. Roofing products are labeled as ENERGY STAR-compliant if they meet the ENERGY STAR standard for reflectance on initial installation as well as after three years of weathering. Reflective roofs can save money on energy bills by minimizing a facility's heat gain.
