Think about how many different skills a roofer has to excel in their profession. They need to be able to climb a ladder safely — and while carrying shingles on their back! They need to know how to drive a hammer, how to lay down flashing, and how to hang gutters. Each of these skills can take weeks or months to master. When we learned about the skills that roofing requires, we immediately became more thankful for the roofers who have worked on our homes. We want to pass on some of that knowledge to you so that you can also appreciate the roof above you.
