Roofing Occupations

Level 2

Roofers re-slate and tile roofs, fit skylight windows and replace lead sheeting and cladding.
Roofers need the ability to understand building plans, good maths skills to work out areas, quantities and prices and practical ability. Day-to-day tasks may include removing or repairing broken tiles or slates (stripping), checking roof timbers, fitting felt sheets to roofs, measuring and cutting materials, covering roofs with slates, tiles or cladding, cutting and fitting lead 'flashings' around chimney stacks and walls sealing roof joints with mortar.
