Homeowners rely on residential roofing contractors for high-quality products and proper installation and maintenance. When you find something wrong with your roofing system, you call the professionals to get the job done right.
But what goes on behind the scenes? Here’s a look at a day in the life of a professional roofer.
What Are the Roofer’s Responsibilities?
- A roofer should be able to provide a realistic estimate of the project. If it’s too high, the roofing contractor is not likely to get the project. If it’s too low, the contractor won’t make a profit.
- The professional roofer’s focus should be on roof repair and construction or installation. Many roofers are trained to work with homeowners and building owners alike, but there are also those that focus on residential or commercial roofing only.
- Roofers should be licensed in the areas where they work. The best ones are also certified by the manufacturers of the products they carry. Roofers have relationships with the entities that issue permits for their projects.
- If it’s a specialized material, the roofer should get additional training and certification to work with it.
- Generally, the roofer should be able to deliver high-quality services, ensuring the quality, watertightness and weather preparedness of a roofing system.
What Does a Roofer Do Daily?
Every workday starts with a safety check. As roofers are expected to be punctual, they are also up earlier than most. They have to take the weather into account. It’s difficult to work when the sun is at its hottest or if there is a storm coming. Before starting a project, roofers set up protection for windows, flowerbeds and other areas of the home.
All throughout the workday, roofers can be busy with any number of tasks, from complete roof replacement to basic roof maintenance and inspections. They also have to do their paperwork and talk to clients.
