Just What Does a Roofer Do?

Roofers have the job of keeping your roof sturdy and in top shape

It’s common knowledge that the roof is an essential part of a home. It protects you, your loved ones, and your property. It’s also well-known that not partaking in roofing maintenance can be detrimental. What may be less-known is the specific duties of a roofer. Just what does a roofer do? Of course, they have the job of keeping your roof sturdy and in top shape, but could you name a few of a roofer’s responsibilities if you had to? No? Well, then continue reading. We’re going to share some details of what a roofer does.

New Installations, Renovations, and Roof Repair Projects

Roofers work on new installations, renovations, and roof repair projects within both residential and commercial places. To execute their jobs properly, roofers need to have excellent carpentry skills because roofers sometimes need to replace old materials with new, stable structures. The contents that roofers deal with include metal, rubber, polymer, asbestos, and tile. Each of these has residential and commercial applications. 

Commercial Buildings

Within the industrial sector, roofers have a preference for rubber roofs. Rubber roof installation is a complicated process and needs expert roofers such as the ones here at Phil DiBello Family Roofing. During some of these jobs, roofing experts have to mop the entire flat area of the roof using a coat of melted tar. Then, roofers install metal sheets around vent pipes, skylights, and heating units. This process takes precise measurement and cutting.

Shingles, Tile, and Metal Roofing

Roofers have to remove existing materials and then lay down tar paper before using new materials that use nails and screws. Roofers also have to replace any damaged wood due to water damage, weather exposure, or rotting. If you know that your roof doesn’t have high-quality lumber, then you should contact one of our contractors right away.
