The Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association was founded in 1922 to bring together contractors as well as businesses with related interests. FRSA's purpose is to foster and encourage a high standard of business ethics among its members and to inform the general public of the importance of doing business with Florida certified licensed and insured roofing professionals. FRSA encourages quality through research, education and recognition of competence. The Association provides potential economies through the cooperative purchasing of insurance, financial services and other products and services designated by the Board of Directors. FRSA represents the interests and acts as the voice of its membership before government and regulatory bodies of all kinds and works to improve the overall industry in keeping with the general purposes of the Association.
