Life is anything but boring for a roofing crew of good old Northern Ontario boys who work hard and party harder. This unforgettable cast of characters includes Dillon, Bossman, Brudder, Johnny the Ripper, Glenny, and What - a man of few words who seems to have trouble keeping his pants on, plus the beautiful bikinied "Brew Crew Girls", who sit in the back of a pick-up truck turned swimming pool and give out business cards to potential customers. Although their days are filled with hard work and dealing with the harassing tactics of their competitors, the boys' nights and weekends are filled with drinking, fighting, backyard barbecues, and good-natured practical jokes. That is, until they decide to head down to the southern states to help repair homes damaged by a hurricane. There, the boys risk everything when they come up against a gang of Mexican roofers who are willing to do anything to eliminate the competition. The Roofers follows the ups and downs of a family roofing business passed from brothers to sons. While a work of fiction, many of the roofers' antics and the situations they face have been shaped by the author's experiences as a real-life roofer. Both eye-opening and entertaining, this book celebrates the everyday blue-collar heroes who get things done..
