Les Watrous
Executive Director Les@nrcia.org
Mr. Watrous provides the overall vision for NRCIA and is the driving force behind all business development operations as NRCIA grows into a recognized, trusted brand name nationwide. He is the chief "guardian of the brand" with a spectrum of responsibilities that includes the overall direction of the company and the development and management of the chapter operations. Mr. Watrous makes sure the company maintains its focus on core values and on its stated mission to provide a superior level of service and exceptional value in meeting the roofing needs and protection of homeowners and the real estate community.
In his twin roles as Founder and Chief Executive Director, Mr. Watrous draws on his broad and varied experience as a business owner, visionary, author, entrepreneur and "hands on" general contractor. He has over 30 years experience in all facets of the residential building industry, including extensive experience in construction management. His core expertise, and his "passion," is providing a system in which other contractors can benefit. He is a leading expert in the roof certification business and developed the patents pending process for inspecting and certifying roofs. Early in his career, Mr. Watrous founded Waterhouse & Associates, a general contracting consumer advocate firm specializing in insurance claims by reconstructing homes damaged by "perils of nature. He quickly became a specialist and has since developed numerous copyrights and proprietary systems that advance the knowledge and techniques of roof certification and the repair process.
Mr. Watrous created NRCIA based on his in-depth knowledge of all sides of the roofing repair business, including the insurance side. In tandem with NRCIA, he developed "LeakFREE® Roof Certification," a two year renewable service agreement that protects sellers, buyers and agents from any future roof related leaks and claims.
Mr. Watrous is also the founder of TGWB Publishing and a former Educational Director providing a 3-credit continuing education correspondence course for real estate agents in California entitled "Roof Certifications for Consumer Protection" as well as a 6-credit continuing education correspondence course for insurance agents in California. He is author of "Top Dollar Property Claims," a business book designed to guide homeowners and contractors through the steps of obtaining a successful claims settlement. The book was selected as one of the "Top 10 Real Estate Books" by The Los Angeles Times.
Mr. Hogue shares in the overall vision with Les Watrous by helping with development of programs and by filling the roll of National Director of Sales & Marketing. Mr. Hogue shares a passion with Les for the building of NRCIA into an Association with high the highest moral standards and a level of integrity unmatched in the roofing industry.

Cert-A-Roof was founded by Les Watrous, its present CEO. Les is also the founder of the NRCA, National Roof Certification Association.
Les adds that home inspection companies are now reluctant to inspect and certify a roof. By positioning themselves with the real estate industry, Les feels that Cert-A-Roof will be in a great position to dominate the market for roof inspections and repairs.
In terms of their growth strategy Cert-A-Roof will market their franchise concept using Regional Developers. In a short time Cert-A-Roof has signed three Regional Developers. According to Les the regional development strategy is based upon the fact that individual franchisees who will require some roofing experience will benefit from the coaching, leadership, marketing and sales development which the Regional Developer will provide. The result a cohesive network of Cert-A-Roof franchisees in a geographic region working together to promote the growth and brand name of Cert-A-Roof and its quality services. Good luck to Les Watrous and his team. Next issue the home handyman industry.
