About New Mexico Roofing
The largest group of roofing contractors in New Mexico is under the banner of the New Mexico Roofing Contractors Association (NMRCA), which includes more than 50 contractors and over 30 Associate Members. Though the state doesn't separately license residential and commercial roofers, the NMRCA does have separate committees for residential and commercial specialists.
