How do Amish roofers operate?
Amish are associated with traditional ways of living and restricted technology. So how do Amish roofers and other contractors do their work? Amish sometimes form partnerships with non-Amish businesspeople to be able to better reach non-Amish markets. A non-Amish partner can assist in online marketing efforts and in other areas where Amish activities are restricted by church standards and religious belief.
Read on to find out how Amish deal with traveling to the workplace and powering their equipment.
Traveling to the jobsite
A defining feature of the Amish is their refusal to own and operate motor vehicles. Rather than limit them to a very small geographical area, Amish have found a solution acceptable to their system of beliefs. While Amish don’t drive cars, nearly all Amish are permitted to ride and hire them if a need should arise.
As with other Amish work crews, an Amish-owned roofing business will typically also employ a driver who operates the work truck or any other vehicles necessary for the business. This non-Amish worker may also perform construction work in addition to his role as a driver.
Since Amish do not operate the vehicles themselves, this is seen as permissible by most Amish churches. Amish also typically do not own their vehicles, but rather lease them, providing another measure of distance from this technology. Amish roofing contractors can travel some distance from home thanks to this arrangement, and typically go up to 2 hours away from their home settlements for roofing jobs.
Don’t Amish forbid electricity?
It’s well-known that Amish prohibit use of public electric power in their homes. However when working on job sites and at non-Amish owned places of business, most Amish are permitted to operate equipment powered from the public grid.
Since Amish do not necessarily own the equipment, or use it in a location away from the home, such use may be permitted. The rules among Amish churches vary, and some are accordingly more or less strict. In all likelihood, Amish roofing contractors hired by you will make use or power tools driven by a public electricity source on-site.
