Roofers apply materials to the roofs of buildings. There are two types of roofs; flat and pitched (slanted).
Roofers cover flat roofs with a single layer of waterproof rubber or thermoplastic compounds. The roofers roll the sheets over the roof’s insulation and seal the seams. They apply adhesives or mechanical fasteners to keep the sheets in place.
On pitched roofs, roofers lay, cut, and tack strips of roofing felt to the roof. Then, starting from the bottom edge of the roof, they nail overlapping rows of shingles. They use chalk lines, the gauges on shingling hatchets, or lines on shingles to make sure the distance of overlap is correct. Roofers measure and cut felt and shingles to fit around vents, chimneys, and corners. They nail strips of metal or shingle over spots where shingles meet an object, such as a vent. Finally, roofers cover exposed nail heads with roofing cement or caulking to prevent water leakage.
Before beginning any roofing jobs, roofers remove debris from the surfaces to be covered. For some roofs, roofers remove old roofing layers. In addition to their roofing duties, they clean and maintain their equipment.
