As a roofer from Europe to the US?


#1

Hi, guys!

I’ve just finished my apprentice ship in Germany and due to the bad economic situation and the fact that I primary work for the state instead of me I got the idea to emigrate to somewhere out of the European Unioin. And as I was always fascinated of the USA it would be my dream to work and live there.

So do you think I’d get a chance to work in your country or do I have to make do with America’s little brother Canada because of your hard immigration-laws?

Hi roofers,

der Dachdecker did not call back yet… lets say for “advice”… but I really offer an apprenticeship, just like we got it in Germany.

Erno,

If I was 20yrs younger I would be right there. I wish we had that kind of training here in the states.

I tried out your round valley technique on a recent repair to a rolled eave roof valley. Turned out …ummm OK. I need a little more practice. :smiley:

Good luck out there.

RooferJ, I care for my jobs… I just don’t know (or have much of a market for, it seems) copper. :smiley:

I’m sure if I learned it & got my info into the right hands, there would be a marke… just not so much here in Texas for slate & copper as there is further up towards the NorthEast.
