So, what does a Roofer do?
Roofers are highly skilled and provide a key service to ensure the security of homes and protect residents from the elements. This involves moving or repairing broken tiles or slates, fitting felt sheets to roofs, covering roofs with slates, tiles or cladding - they key elements of a Roofer’s role. Once qualified, you can expect to earn between £15,000 to 32,000 and with experience, you could specialise in heritage conservation, thatching or installing solar panels. You could also become a Roofing Surveyor or set up your own business.
