Roofing Contractors Registration Act of Oklahoma
According to a new Oklahoma law, Roofing Contractors are now required to be registered by the state in order to do business in Oklahoma.
We are proud to announce that Parker Brothers Roofing is now registered with the State of Oklahoma Constructions Industries Board and our Oklahoma Registration License Number is #80000013.
Effective January 01, 2011, the state of Oklahoma now requires all roofing contractors to register with the Oklahoma Construction Industries Board. The law is an effort to protect homeowners from unqualified and unscrupulous roofing companies.
It is listed as Sections 1151 Title 59 known as the “Roofing Contractors Registration Act”. Contractors will have tougher regulations to maintain.
The Contraction Industries Board will publicly maintain a registry of qualified roofing contractors containing all legally registered roofing contractors. It will keep records and information of all individual and company owned roofing contractors and is available to the public

Ice Dam Removal Tips
Ice dam removal must be considered a vital maintenance procedure for a homeowner. An ice dam is a barrier of solid ice that forms in winter above the roof soffit over the eaves, the area between the vertical wall of a home and the edge of the roof. When snow melts above the ice dam, the water is trapped and may seep back into the walls of the house, causing damage to insulation, ceilings, and walls. In extreme cases, the water may actually flood through into the interior of the home, soaking furniture, carpet, bookshelves, and whatever else may be caught under the torrent.
There are two elements required for the formation of an ice dam: heavy snowfall and improper attic ventilation. If there are warm areas of the attic that cause snow to melt high up on the roof, the water seeps down and freezes at the soffit. Gutters may add to the problem by trapping ice or frozen debris.
