If you’ve ever observed a professional hammering away nails during a siding replacement job, or a roofer laying out shingles on a roof replacement project, it’s easy to think that it’s a pretty straightforward job. Sure, it takes time and effort to do like most jobs are but, all things considered, it’s not the most difficult work in the world. The truth is, there’s more to it than meets the eye.
Let our experienced roofing contractors at Moss Roofing walk you through a typical day in the life of a roofer.
Jobs for the Day
Roofing and siding repair companies keep a very tight schedule to keep up with the demands of all their clients. Appointments become increasingly hard to book approaching the storm season and figuring out priorities can be taxing for the whole crew. Before setting out for a service call, contractors will often do a full equipment inspection and safety check. This ensures that all the tools they need are ready, in good shape and OSHA-compliant.
At the Job Site
Once on the job, the work is started depending on what the contract is. For roof replacement projects, this often begins by tearing up the old shingles to make space for the new ones. Roof repair work, on the other hand, begins with an inspection of the problem area. This process can be done ahead of time, however, it’s not rare to see roofers conduct another preliminary check on the day itself just to see if there are any developments.
Once everything is completed, we do a final walkthrough to make sure that everything is in order and the worksite is left cleaned, cleared and tidied up. You can expect to meet up with the foreman or a representative to settle all outstanding balances during this time as well.
