Hot Tar Roofers - Wages & Trends

The number of hours roofers spend on the job may be reduced by bad weather or downturns in construction activity. Thus, overall earnings may be lower than these wages suggest.

Wages are higher for roofers who work in large cities such as New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Wages are also higher for skilled roofers.

Roofers who work full time for a construction company may receive benefits. Common benefits include sick leave, paid vacation, and health insurance. Roofers who are self-employed or work part time must provide their own insurance.
