Roofers replace, repair, and install the roofs of buildings, using a variety of materials, including shingles, bitumen, and metal.

At Ohio Roofer training centers, apprentices typically learn to:

  • Inspect problem roofs to determine the best way to repair them
  • Measure roofs to calculate the quantities of materials needed
  • Replace damaged or rotting joists or plywood
  • Install vapor barriers or layers of insulation
  • Install ventilation systems
  • Install shingles, asphalt, metal, or other materials to make the roof weatherproof
  • Align roofing materials with edges of the roof
  • Cut roofing materials to fit around walls or vents, and
  • Cover exposed nail or screw heads with roofing cement or caulk to prevent leakage.
