Skills Framework- Roofer

Overview

Roofers ensure that a house is water tight and work at all heights and in all weather conditions. There are various roles within roofing, including sheeting and cladding and slater/tilers. Roofing operatives work on the protective layers of a home, which separate the inside from the elements using a range of materials, methods and structures.
