We often get asked questions about our jobs and why we love the work we get to do every day. And believe us when we say we LOVE our work! The roofing industry may not be the most glamorous or sought out field but for our team at Empire Roofing & Exteriors, the work is more than a profession – it’s a passion.

We’re happy to see that the number of students going to school to become roofers, or just going into the trades in general, is growing every year and is expected to continue growing for years to come. Our team is excited to see what these new roofers will bring to our industry as they learn about all the amazing benefits of entering this field. In today’s blog, we wanted to outline some of the many reasons why we love what we do.

The Work is Hands-On

Since we are always working with our hands and manually getting the work done, we can take extreme pride in our handcrafted workmanship. Every day we can leave work satisfied with the integrity of a job well done because we get to see a project through from start to finish. We also love that there are opportunities to continue learning on the job and we can upgrade our skills constantly. If you are just starting in the industry there are apprenticeships and certifications available to include both classroom and on-the-job training. This is a great approach to learning the industry because it is always changing and growing so there is constantly something new to learn. We love that we can keep evolving with the industry to help homeowners and business owners preserve their roofing systems.


The roofing industry thrives off teamwork! We love that we can work with our crew every day to complete tasks together. Not only has our team been able to bond on the job, but our combined skillset really lets us go above and beyond to get jobs done the right way. Even within our team of equally skilled craftsmen, we all have different strengths and can come up with strategies together to provide you with the best roofing advice possible. Our team compliments each other, and we hold each other accountable to always perform at the highest standard. The Empire Roofing & Exteriors team has worked together for years, providing exceptional customer service to homeowners in Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and surrounding areas.

Working Outdoors

Roofing is not your typical office job and some people are just not meant for the office world. We love that we are not cooped up in an office or glued to a chair every day and can instead get outside. Since our work is not seasonal, we get to enjoy the fresh air all year long. Our work is physically demanding as well so it’s a chance for us to incorporate some great exercise into our workdays to keep us healthy and able to continue providing the best roofing work we can. An added bonus to working outside is that we often get to enjoy driving by previous projects and looking at the roof systems with pride that we helped install or repair.

Work Variety

Every roof is unique which makes every project different as well. Our team has worked with a wide variety of different roofing materials and slopes to make different improvements, repairs, and installations. We also work in different locations from day to day and no neighborhood or roofing system is the same. There is always a new challenge driving us forward or a problem waiting for us to solve so there are constantly opportunities to grow and learn on the job. Whether individually or as a team, each experience or project lets us grow and learn a new lesson to improve for our next job. The industry is constantly evolving with new technology, products, and techniques so we are happy we get to grow alongside it.

Customer Satisfaction

This is by far, the most fulfilling and important reason we love what we do. Our customers are, without a doubt, the ultimate reason we enjoy coming to work every day. We get to build a reputation of trust and compassion with our clients to provide them with some much-needed relief. Our team enjoys building long-term relationships with our customers and many refer us to friends and family – we cannot thank you all enough for your loyalty and continued support! Getting to turn something outdated or broken into something new and beautiful for homeowners is the most rewarding part of our jobs. As roofers, we know how significant it is that you all place your roofing investments into our hands so that we can provide a safe and secure home for your family.
