Having the roofer job title does not mean that all you do is put roofs on homes and businesses. Many jobs fall into this classification, from estimating what the job will cost to installing roofing materials. Some of the different roofing specialist jobs may include tile installers, tile removers, and tar applicators. On some rubber roofs, spreading peas is a very tiring job. If it is an ecological green roof, you have to put grass on the waterproof membrane that is placed there.
One roofing specialist job that is very important is doing the job of a job estimator. Many times, they also have the title of crew foreman. This person is the one who will meet with a prospective client and give them an estimate of the cost of a new roof. If the quoted quote is too expensive, the job could go to another roofing company with a lower offer. If they give an offer that is too low, it could cause the company money or anger the customer if the final bill is higher than the offer. In speaking with the prospective customer, this roofing specialist should understand the prices of the materials needed to install the roof, warranty information, colors the customer can choose from, and the different features that this particular roof offers. This information is important so that they can give the client the correct information and calculate their offer for the job.
In older homes, the existing roof may need to be removed first, which is why roofing specialists for this job are called a teardown crew. They will not only remove the old shingles, metal roofing materials, and shingles, but also the material that is under them. This is usually plywood and must be removed to expose the joist. Once this is done, the crew with the most carpentry skills will rebuild the roof. Once they have rebuilt the roof, it will be re-covered with felt paper. The next layer of the roof will be the metal sheets, tiles or tiles.
Another roofing specialist job is a rubber roofer. In this category of work, a team of experts will remove the pea stone used to keep the ceiling down. Once the pea stone has been completely removed, they will raise the roof underneath and put it on a trailer for recycling. Other roofing specialist jobs include installers and applicators who cut and glue sheets of rubber to the roof. They need to make sure that the rubber fits snugly against all features on the roof, which may include antennas, chimneys, and vents. Once this job is complete, the tar crew will spread hot tar on the seams of the rubber roof.
