Employment for roofers is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Roofers will continue to be in demand for the construction of new buildings, and roofs tend to need more maintenance and repair work than other parts of buildings. About 75 percent of roofing work is on existing structures. Roofers will always be needed for roof repairs and replacement, even during economic downturns when construction activity generally decreases. Also, damp-proofing and waterproofing are expected to provide an increasing proportion of the work done by roofers. On the other hand, more construction workers are completing roofing projects as part of their work, which could impede job growth.
