Roofing includes the construction, maintenance and repair of residential or business roofs. This tradesperson works with a wide variety of materials to protect a building from various elements and ensure its structural integrity.
A roof’s primary function is to shed water, and it accomplishes this task through the use of guttering and flashing. It is important to remember that standing water on a roofing structure can pose a safety risk and cause damage both to the sheathing and rafters as well as a premature deterioration in most roofing materials. This can result to the voiding or most manufacturer’s warranty.
During an average day, a roofer will start by inspecting the job site to determine whether it is safe and free of hazards. The roof will be prepared by removing all existing materials, cleaning the roof and repairing any damaged areas. Next, they install the roofing material. This may involve laying down shingles or tiles, cutting them to size and securing them in place. Finally, they will apply weatherproofing treatments and seal seams to prevent leaks.
Metal roofing is gaining popularity, especially among homeowners. Metal roofs use less energy than asphalt shingles, which can absorb 30% of solar heat. Metal roofs can also withstand wind speeds much higher than asphalt counterparts. This results in lower cooling costs and less repair work.
