Most people join the roofing industry for a great paying job where new recruits are in high demand. They stay for a rewarding career in a growing industry that helps protect others where they live and work.
Roofing is the construction industry’s best-kept secret. Until now.
The commercial and residential roofing industry is booming, with demand for 19,000 new jobs expected by 2028. Why? Buildings are big business, and protecting, maintaining and repairing properties - from homes to stadiums - is critical to the long-term investment in any building project. It's why hard-working, dedicated roofers can expect a starting wage of $39,970 per year (or $19.22/hour).
Now is the perfect time to begin a career in roofing with the new GAF Roofing Academy. Designed to help you build the necessary skills for an entry-level position, the GAF Roofing Academy combines classroom and on-the-roof training with access to job opportunities from GAF’s national network of thousands of independent, certified contractors seeking talent.Figures sourced from The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
