What is a Roofer?
Roofers waterproof and weatherproof buildings. They apply shingles made from fiberglass, slate, tile and cedar or composite material such as rubber membrane. They also apply built-up rubber, PVC and modified bitumen.
Roofers work outdoors in all kinds of weather and shut down only when weather is severe. Craftsmen do a great deal of climbing, kneeling, standing and walking. Persons interested in becoming a roofer must have no fear of heights, a good sense of balance and be keenly aware of safety for themselves and their co-workers.
