Roofing in the modern world has changed a bit since the old days of hand nailing singles in the Virginia hot sun growing up as a kid. Now in the roofing industry there are more Hispanic roofers than American roofers and there is good reason for this. Hispanic roofers are really great roofers and not many Americans now can withstand the hard manual labor. The demand for roofing always stays at a high level of growth in most areas and there is a lack of good help in the industry.
The use of pneumatic tools is on the rise, not much hand nailing going on anymore. There are still a few old school roofing companies that hand nail and use that as a good selling point in some areas. Technology has increased in the field of roof leak detection with inferred thermo imaging devices. TPO roofing membrane is the new best modern roofing system that lasts for many years, is very durable and it is green earth friendly as it is 90% recyclable. Robots are used to weld the seams on large TPO projects as they are fast and do not make mistakes of human error.
There are many online helpful content management systems for the roofing business. These content management systems (CMS) help with organization and sales management. There also now are satellite management systems, software’s and satellite measuring services that help with measuring a roof remotely even if you are far away from the roof project.
The roofing industry has changed over the years and it is forever growing in demand and productivity.
