There are pretty much plenty of jobs a person can do that promise extra bucks and one of them is a roof repair job. This job can be tough, and if you are not in for some risk, then this thing is not for you. However, if you love to do this task and if you are capable enough to do so, then perhaps it’s the job you may want to consider. The big question: how much money can you earn with this work?
According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, a roofer can averagely earn at least $18.54 per hour, and that will sum up to $38,570 (or more) per year. In order to attain this though, you need to basically assess yourself first if you can handle the task. Potential roofers usually go through a formal apprenticeship program which usually takes three years. This training includes classroom discussions and on the job working experience (with pay). Roofers should also be at least 18 years old and above and should possess a high school diploma and good and sound physicality.
This job is a bit challenging and hazardous. That explains the generous amount of salary the consumers promise. But as mentioned, you should be certain enough that it’s the job you are willing to take because of its danger. But then again, this kind of job can be readily available as roofs decline more quickly compared to other parts of the building and they are needed to be replaced more often. Therefore, the job demand will always be there.
