Benefits of a Roofing Contractor That’s a General Contractor, Too
A roofing contractor can also be a General Contractor, as is Endurance Roofing. A roofing contractor who also serves as a GC can be responsible for managing all aspects of the construction project, including coordinating the work of subcontractors, scheduling, quality control, and ensuring that the project is completed on time and within budget. It is important to note that not all roofing contractors are qualified or experienced to act as a GC, and that makes Endurance Roofing special.
How Does Endurance Work in a GC Capacity?
Endurance Roofing oversees the overall construction project and manages subcontractors, whereas a specialist contractor (e.g. plumber, electrician, etc.) focuses on a specific trade or aspect of the construction project. Naturally, Endurance fills the specialist role as a roofing contractor, too! So, Endurance would be coordinating the work of all subcontractors, while ensuring that the project is completed on time and within budget. Again, Endurance would also act as a subcontractor for the roofing part of the overall project.

Class A, B, C Licenses–Denver, Longmont, Boulder, and Other Localities
There are Class A, B, and C types of general contractor licenses at the local level. Many municipalities, including Longmont and Boulder, classify general contractor licenses into three categories. Denver is the largest market for general contractors in Colorado, but the city also has the most restrictive licensing process.
Class A license: This is the broadest license type. It allows contractors to work on any building project, regardless of size. Contractors with a Class A license may not work on plumbing, electrical, mechanical, fire extinguishing or elevators unless they obtain trade-specific licenses in those areas.
Class B license: Contractors with this license can work on most residential and commercial building projects, except those designated as IA or IIA by the International Building Code. Class B contractors may not work on specific trades without holding additional licenses.
Class C license: Contractors with this license are limited to projects involving residential buildings for single-family dwellings or multi-family dwellings. The dwellings must not have more than three stories or four living units. Contractors may not work on specific trades without holding additional licenses.
A reputable General Contractor, like Endurance Roofing, Siding & Gutters typically holds the following licenses (where required in selective Colorado municipalities), certifications, bonding, and insurance credentials:

Check Your Contractor's Experience and References
Since general contractor licensing is regulated by local governments in Colorado, the process will vary by location. Most areas only require a contractor to be licensed if they are performing work that requires a building permit. This can be problematic for property owners concerned about whether the contractor they wish to hire is reliable and legitimate. In many areas of the country, where tornados, hurricanes, and brush fires are common, there will always be a few inscrutable service providers sweeping in after a severe event to take advantage of property owners desperate for assistance.
