6. What is a WPI-8?
A certificate of compliance, or WPI-8, is a document issued by the Texas Department of Insurance and certifies that a home's construction and any structural alterations or repairs are made to withstand high winds that occur on the Texas coast. With few exceptions, a WPI-8 is required to obtain coverage with TWIA.

8. Do you install siding?
Yes! Many home owners elect to have us do other exterior repairs at the same time.
8. Do you install gutters?
Yes! Gutters play an integral part in your roofing system. If they can't do their job properly, water can back up onto your roof causing leaks and eventually damage to the decking.
9. What type of warranty does Watts Roofing provide?
Most GAF Lifetime Roofing Systems installed by Watts Roofing come complete with a 10 year labor warranty and a manufacturer's 50 year non-prorated warranty. Other roofing systems and repairs may vary depending on the manufacturer.
10. Are you a licensed contractor?
Unfortunately, the state of Texas does not require roofers to be licensed. There is no roofing contractor licensing in Texas. This means that you, as a homeowner, must be very careful in whom you select to install
your roof. We are a licensed roofing contractor in the state of Louisiana.
