How to get your Illinois Roofing License

Illinois requires roofing contractors to pass the IL roofing exam to obtain a license to work in the state. IL requires the following roofing licenses depending on what type of work your company intends to offer:

  • Residential (Limited License)

  • Residential, Commercial and Industrial (Unlimited License)

  • Commercial/Industrial (Candidate must pass Residential exam before)


The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations (IDFPR) is responsible for issuing roofing licenses to contractors throughout Illinois, but testing is conducted by separate entities, such as Continental Testing Services. Roofers can apply for a limited license (residential roofing), unlimited license (residential, commercial, and industrial roofing), or a commercial/industrial license.
