There’s something to be said about working for your family business. Though one might assume that it’s the path of least resistance, in many cases, it’s anything but — especially in the roofing business. And, as most veteran roofing contractors will tell you, from beginning to end, roofing is hard, tedious, get-your-hands-dirty work.
As far as hard labor goes, working on roofs during hot summers, rainy springs and cold winters is only the beginning. Whether you’re working for your family business or not, roofing is an industry of milestones and climbing your way up (both literally and figuratively). Nevertheless, the payoff of earning your place in the family business is quite rewarding.
