A knife is one of the most important tools you will need when doing a roof. You will use the knife to cut your underlayment ice and water shield. You can use the hook blade to cut your shingles. Another tool you will need is the snips. The snips will help you cut your drip edge and do all your flashing work around the chimneys. You will also be able to do that tough cut around your pipe flange. The snips help you get the right angle and curl on the shingle.

A tape measure and a pen are some of the tools you do not want to miss as a commercial roofer. These tools will help you take accurate measurements while you are marking the roof. Roofing nails will prevent you from running down to your trailer every time you want to put a jack in. Besides, you will need to have tap nails to put underlayment on the roof.

A hammer is an essential tool that helps you bang any nails you missed while ripping the roof.
