Forum Title: When new to roofing...
What is the most important first thing to learn? I will be getting trained this spring and start working in the summer. My brother wants me to wait till I turn 18 so I can get insurance and he wont fire anyone under 18 for any job for safety reasons.

The best advice I can give you is listen. Make sure you that you listen to everything that you‚re told. Always keep safety in mind. This is a dangerous job and you should never forget that.

He broke a couple ribs but ended up retiring from roofing.
