Roofer Jobs in Detroit, MI

Repair and install watertight roofs for buildings. Roofers inspect faulty roofs to determine how to use supplies like shingles, asphalt, and metal to solve the problem. They must be able to measure the defective area and estimate how much material they will need to fix the issue. Roofers also install insulation and vapor barriers, and cover exposed rivets with roofing cement or caulk.

Most roofers work with a crew, and some specialize in specific systems. For example, sustainable roofs are becoming increasingly popular and require roofers with knowledge of vegetation and root systems.
