The Roofer – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a roofer working on a roof. A roofer, roof mechanic, or roofing contractor is a tradesperson who specialises in roof construction. Roofers replace, repair, and install the roofs of buildings, using a variety of materials, including shingles, bitumen, and metal. Roofing work can be physically demanding because it may involve heavy lifting, climbing, bending, and kneeling, often in extreme weather conditions. Roofers are also vulnerable to falls from heights due to working at elevated heights.
