There is a solid, exciting career to be had in roofing, and your career path could include being recognized for your accomplishments through professional certifications. Above and beyond the recognition, you will build wealth, be able to work outside and know your work protects people.
Although you do not have to attend a trade school to become a professional roof system installer, you will get a head start on your career if you have some knowledge and skills. Studying roofing in school also will give you an opportunity to participate in SkillsUSA.
