The roof is one of the single most important components of any home. No part plays a bigger role in keeping the elements out, so when a roof requires repair, you have little time to waste. The desire to have a roof quickly replaced and the fact that most people have little experience working with a roofing contractor can set an unsuspecting homeowner up for a variety of scams.

Roofers may work in commercial and residential settings to assess, repair, or build roofs. A roofer must be able to perform accurate, occasionally intricate work, as well as be able to work safely. A roofer generally works either for a general construction company or for one that specializes in working with the construction and repair of roofs specifically.
One aspect of a roofer’s work involves assessment and repair estimates for preexisting structures. Depending on seniority and responsibility level, the roofer may make a best-practice estimation about the viability of repair on a roof versus replacement. The roofer also needs to be aware of and comfortable with advancements and developments in roofing, and they must demonstrate competence in executing these techniques and equipment. For roofers working on new construction projects, they must follow the design specifications of the architect or engineer. 


Roofing is a labor-intensive profession. Roofers work outdoors with their hands and typically possess a background in basic carpentry. Prospective roofers normally need relevant experience, but some vocational schools offer specialized training in carpentry and construction. Roofing work may be seasonal in certain parts of the country, with roofing not performed during especially cold and/or wet times of year.


Roof system components


All steep-slope roof systems (i.e., roofs with slopes of 25 percent or more) have five basic components

  1. Roof covering: shingles, tile, slate or metal and underlayment that protect the sheathing from weather.
  2. Sheathing: boards or sheet material that are fastened to roof rafters to cover a house or building.
  3. Roof structure: rafters and trusses constructed to support the sheathing.
  4. Flashing: sheet metal or other material installed into a roof system's various joints and valleys to prevent water seepage.
  5. Drainage: a roof system's design features, such as shape, slope and layout that affect its ability to shed water.
