Roofing is not an easy job and working as an Edmonton roofer is a very difficult job. Not only is it very taxing on the body but it requires great coordination and skill as well.
Heavy bundles of roofing shingles need to be shouldered and distributed all over the roof. Roofing is such a hands on and intense industry that is always needed. Roofers really need to have a high level of safety conciseness and self-motivation to be successful in this job.
The work is very rewarding for the most part and requires that the individual likes physical exercise, being outside, working with their hands and keeps up with all the safety regulations. Roofers also need to have very good balance, be sure-footed and not be afraid of heights.
Roofing is also not a job for introverts or people who like to work by themselves because you need to be able to interact with your other coworkers and get along. It’s much safer and efficient to have a few workers on a project then just one or two.
Another element of roofing is that it’s always evolving and changing as new green ideas are brought to the table and roofers have to accommodate and change with what people are wanting.
There will always be a job for the Edmonton roofer as this trade is far less sensitive to economic alterations and there will always be a need for repair jobs even if actual construction slows down. Also, roofs need to be replaced on average every 15 to 30 years so there will always be lots of work. Most roofers get employed by a roofing contractor. As roofers gain experience they can then move up to being their own independent contractors or perhaps become a supervisor.
