Roofer

Program Name: 
Roofer Apprentice

A leaky roof can damage ceilings, walls, and furnishings. To protect buildings and their contents from water damage, roofers repair and install roofs made of tar or asphalt and gravel; rubber or thermoplastic; metal; or shingles made of asphalt, slate, fiberglass, wood, tile, or other material. Repair and reroofing-replacing old roofs on existing buildings-provide many job opportunities for these workers. Roofers also may waterproof foundation walls and floors.
