Role of a Roofer

Unsurprisingly, roofers are building workers who specialise in everything to do with roofs, using their skills to erect, clad and waterproof roof structures and install rainwater goods and flashing. They are the guys shimmying up onto the top of your house or block of flats to fix that leaky roof and keep your family toasty, warm and dry.

Roofers tend to work on two types of roofs: sloped roofs, which usually require slating and tiling using roof tiles, or flat roofs, which are covered by spreading a waterproof bitumen layer or fitting felt sheets. Some choose to specialise in more unusual roofing techniques such as thatching or leadwork.

A large part of a roofer’s work will be repairing roofs, by removing and replacing broken tiles measuring, cutting and fitting roofing materials, and finishing off joints to make them watertight. Roofers also check to make sure that roofs are structurally sound.Roof tilers generally work a 40-hour, five-day week, but overtime may be required to meet construction deadlines.

Those who work for themselves would normally work longer hours including weekends to complete the job as quoted. You'll work outdoors on roofs of varying heights, sometimes from ladders and scaffolds. You must observe safe working practices to avoid falling and injury when working with hazardous materials. The heat can be intense for those working on roof structure in the summer.
