Not to be confused with a roof plumber a roofer is a term used to describe any personnel that works on a roof. A roofer can include the like of a roofing contractor, a general contractor also taking on roofing work, an unlicensed contractor or unlicensed roofing contractor who works for a roofing company. Prior to approving someone to take on your project, be sure to clarify whether or not they are licenced to do so, you can witness their licence or contractor’s licence. Many qualified roof plumbers may bring an unlicensed roofer to assist them, and this is acceptable. Never allow an unlicensed roofer perform works solo.
