Depending on experience and skills, a roofer may specialize in different areas of roofing. Some of the services that these roofing experts offer include repairing or replacing old or damaged roofs and the removal of old roof debris during repair or new installation, among other tasks.

Roofers are required to follow safety rules and use the right equipment but may still become injured due to falls, electric shock, or overexertion, leading to serious injuries like cuts, scrapes, and burns. They may also be exposed to the sun and inclement weather when working outside.

Roofing work is done in different weather conditions and requires physical strength to lift heavy materials. It can be dangerous since roofs are usually high off the ground, sharp objects like nails are often used, and other tools like saws and drills are used with sharp blades. Most roofing work is done under an open sky or in poorly-ventilated spaces.
