Forum Title: Have you ever had to stop working for medical reasons?
I was reading that a lot of roofers end up getting hurt or sick and end up taking time off. This means there is a lot of down time that can happen where you don't get paid. That made me a bit worried. I would imagine it is over things like pulled muscles and heat strokes.Have you ever had to stop working for a certain amount of time due to roofing related issues?

I actually pulled my back pretty bad a few months back. It was part of the slower season for roofing so I didn't miss much. I was out of work for 3 weeks.I feel like if I had worn a brace like it was recommended to move the stacks of shingles, I would not have hurt myself.

I don't work directly on the roofing but handle paper work. I run the office for my husband's company.He has had injury issues a few times and we see it happening on a bi-monthly basis. Most cases it is minor but a few have been severe enough where the worker had to quit outright.

Just last year I injured my left knee. I was out of work for 6 weeks. It sucked big time because it was in the midst of our busy season. I was able to do minor work but I was not medically cleared to lift anything heavy nor step foot on a roof.
