How to Become a Roofer
To become a roofer, you do not need a formal education. Some employers may require qualifications such as prior training or experience in roof installation, but there are apprenticeship programs to teach new roofers the skills they need for the job. You do need to be able to meet the physical demands of roofing jobs. Lifting heavy materials, climbing ladders, bending and kneeling on sloped surfaces, and working outdoors in all weather conditions are all essential responsibilities for roofers. You can start a career in roofing with little experience and learn through training with a contractor or experienced roofer.
