With the price of college courses rising dramatically in recent years, more and more people are turning to the trades for viable career options. If you have strong dexterity and technical skills, you could succeed as a roofer.
Roofers are essential wherever buildings are found. You can choose to go into residential or commercial roofing, and you may find that you change up your preferred niche over time.
To get started, you may be able to take an apprenticeship position under established local roofers or you may need to take a few training and certification courses. Either way, you will be well trained and eventually ready to work as a fully certified and experienced roofer.
It’s important to note that roofers often work in teams and handle jobs that are slightly dangerous. You’ll spend your days working outdoors high above the ground using power tools if you choose this career path. However, your work will always be in demand and you can build great working relationships as you support other roofers on your team to build strong, durable roofs.
