Who doesn’t want to be the UK’s highest earner?
As research by Simply Business suggests, “across the whole of the UK, roofers are the highest earners.” They rake in an average turnover of up to £65,213. After all, a roof is often the largest investment prospective homeowners will make when considering a new build. The roofing you install protects, frames and defines the entire home!
As roofing is a highly skilled trade, you are compensated accordingly. Although training may seem overwhelming at first, there are easily accessible trade schools up and down the country where you can achieve exceptional skill and intuition in all aspects of roofing.
