Shingle worker

Shingle workers specialise in creating and laying roofing and wall coverings with small wooden tiles. These so-called shingles are crafted from carefully selected wood, which is split into slats a few millimetres thick. Laid by a master shingle worker, these tiles create a roof that can last for up to a hundred years.
