The roofer’s primary responsibility is to ensure that the roof functions properly, with no leaks, deterioration, or other problems. Roofers also install materials over the roof, such as asphalt and tar; replace missing or cracked shingles; repair cracked or missing tiles; repair other structures and support constructions; and perform other duties as needed. In some states, homeowners retain the right to choose which roofer performs the work, but in most cases, the homeowner will hire a roofer to perform all necessary work on their behalf.
The typical roofers work includes placing the roof on the structure, repairing any damage, installing skylights or vents, sealing any seams and joint areas, caulking any spaces, adding skylights and vents, applying sealant to all surfaces, painting and interior and exterior colors, digging down to the bottom of the crawl space to install ventilation systems, placing flashing and gaskets, adding sealant to the roof and to the walls, securing all joint areas, stucco, rubber, and cellulose materials to the roof, staining and painting the roof, adding roof fixtures such as light fixtures and skylights, preparing the site for snow, adding and repairing roof decks, edging the top of the roof, and then attaching the roof to the frame. Although all roofers work can be performed by one person, it is still a good idea for each roofer to have a minimum of two people working. This allows for multiple types of roofing work to be done at the same time. This also prevents an over-working of one or more roofers, which may cause problems during the roof construction process.
