What kind of jobs can a roofer in Manchester take on?

Pitched roofs are usually made from clay, cement or slate, while flat roofs are often built from timber and covered with felt or asphalt. Flat roofs are also made from GRP, a type of modern fibreglass, which might need a roofer with specialist experience.
