Working on a variety of building types, union roofers and waterproofers protect those facilities against water intrusion and damage to the structure and its contents.

Roofers in the commercial and industrial sector learn to install built-up type or single-ply roofing and modified hot bitumen or torched-on. They work in high places and in all types of weather.

Waterproofers protect the building against moisture intrusion, which can be done below grade on a structure’s foundation. Waterproofing also is done on plaza decks, parking garages and other sections of buildings.
