Roofers are professionals who cover the roofs of structures with shingles, slate, asphalt, aluminum, wood, and related materials. They spray roofs, siding, and walls with material to bind, seal, insulate, or soundproof sections of structures.
1) Align roofing materials with edges of roofs.
2) Roofers apply alternate layers of hot asphalt or tar and roofing paper to roofs, according to specification.
3) Apply gravel or pebbles over top layers of roofs, using rakes or stiff-bristled brooms.
4) They apply plastic coatings and membranes, fiberglass, or felt over sloped roofs before applying shingles.
5) Cement or nail flashing strips of metal or shingle over joints to make them watertight.
6) Cover exposed nailheads with roofing cement or caulking to prevent water leakage and rust.
7) They cover the roofs and exterior walls of structures with slate, asphalt, aluminum, wood, gravel, gypsum, and/or related materials, using brushes, knives, punches, hammers and other tools.
8) Cut felt, shingles, and strips of flashing; and fit them into angles formed by walls, vents, and intersecting roof surfaces.
9) Cut roofing paper to size using knives, and nail or staple roofing paper to roofs in overlapping strips to form bases for other materials.
10) Glaze top layers to make a smooth finish or embed gravel in the bitumen for rough surfaces.
11) Inspect problem roofs to determine the best procedures for repairing them.
12) Roofers install overlapping layers of material over roof insulation surfaces, determining the distance of roofing material overlap using chalk lines, gauges on shingling hatchets, or lines on shingles.
13) Install vapor barriers and/or layers of insulation on the roof decks of flat roofs, and seal the seams.
14) They install, repair, or replace single-ply roofing systems, using waterproof sheet materials such as modified plastics, elastomeric, or other asphaltic compositions.
5) Mop or pour hot asphalt or tar onto roof bases.
16) Clean and maintain equipment.
17) Hammer and chisel away rough spots or remove them with rubbing bricks to prepare surfaces for waterproofing.
18) Punch holes in slate, tile, terra cotta, or wooden shingles, using punches and hammers.
19) Remove snow, water, or debris from roofs prior to applying roofing materials.
20) Set up scaffolding to provide safe access to roofs.
21) Spray roofs, sidings, and walls with material to bind seal, insulate, or soundproof sections of structures, using spray guns, air compressors, and heaters.
22) Waterproof and damp-proof walls, floors, roofs, foundations, and basements by painting or spraying surfaces with waterproof coatings, or by attaching waterproofing membranes to surfaces.
23) Estimate roofing materials and labor required to complete jobs, and provide price quotes.

Some of the popular roofing types are-
Pros: Gable roofs will easily shed water and snow, provide more space for the attic or vaulted ceilings and allow more ventilation. Their inherently simple design makes it easy to build them and cheaper than more complex designs.
Cons: In high wind and hurricane areas gable roofs can be problematic. If the frames are not properly constructed with adequate supports, the roof can collapse.
Pros: They are more stable than gable roofs. The inward slope of all four sides is what makes it more sturdy and durable. They are excellent for both high wind and snowy areas. No water stands on it as the slant of the roof allows snow to easily slide off.
Cons: They are more expensive to build than a gable roof. It’s a more complex design that requires more building materials. Also, with the addition of a dormer, additional seams can make it easier for the water leaks to form in the valleys if a roofing system is not properly installed.
Pros: Mansard roofs can help create a great deal of extra living space.
Cons: For areas receiving heavy snowfall a low pitched portion of a mansard roof isn’t ideal.
