Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it worth it to hire a roofer?

There are several reasons why it’s worth it to hire a professional roofer instead of attempting it yourself. The first is safety. Roofing is inherently dangerous, as a fall from a roof could seriously injure or kill you. Roofers have specialized equipment and training to help prevent accidents.  

Next is experience. Roofers know how to spot problems (leaks, missing shingles, moss or mold growth, etc.)  in your roof that could potentially save you from costly repairs down the road. 

And finally, roofers save you time by getting the job done quickly and with a high degree of quality.

How do I choose the best roofing contractor?

Choosing a roofer starts by reading reviews online. Compare customer ratings of roofing contractors and companies to identify pros with a good track record of craftsmanship and customer relations. Some reviews may also have photos of completed roofing jobs.

Many states require a license for someone to do roofing work, so make sure the companies you’re considered are licensed. Also, look for contractors and companies with several years of experience. 

Before you make your final choice, contact several roofers near you to get free estimates and quotes. Ultimately, choose the roofer that will do high-quality work for a reasonable price. 

What is the best roofing material?

The best roofing material for your home will depend on your budget and what you’re looking for. If you want a roof that has longevity, consider the following: 

Asphalt Roof

Lasts 20 years

$5 per square foot

Metal Roof

Last 50 years

$10-$18 per square foot 

Clay Roof

Last a lifetime

$15-$20 per square foot (for terracotta)

$20 per square foot (for Spanish clay tile)

Concrete Roof

Last a lifetime

$10 per square foot

Slate Roof

Last a lifetime

$10-$75 per square foot

Does homeowners insurance cover roof replacement?

Homeowners insurance generally covers roof replacement if the roof is damaged by a natural disaster or a sudden accident, according to Investopedia. However, insurance companies often won’t cover roof replacement costs if the roof is older than 20 years. Read your insurance policy to find out what types of roof repairs or damages are covered.

How long does a roof last?

A roof’s lifespan depends on two major factors: the material and how well the roof was installed. Assuming that the roof is installed properly, here’s how long different roofing materials should last:

  • Asphalt shingle roof: 20 years
  • Metal roof: 50 years
  • Slate roof: 100+ years (lifetime)
  • Clay roof: Lifetime
  • Concrete roof: Lifetime
  • Copper roof: Lifetime

How do you know when you need a new roof?

Some of the signs that indicate you need a new roof include cupping, warping and peeling asphalt shingles, as well as cracks on certain shingles. Other warning signs may include:

  • Leakage
  • Exposed nails 
  • Missing granules
  • Droopy, sagging roof
  • Moss, mold or fungi growth 

A metal roof may need to be replaced when it grows rusty and begins leaking. Tile roofs made of clay, slate or concrete need repairs when cracked. Cleaning and inspecting the roof regularly can help prevent major damage from occurring. 

Contact the best roofers near you to inspect, repair or replace your roof.

Do you tip roofers?

It’s not customary or required to tip roofers. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t tip, but it is generally not expected. If you do decide to tip, you can give the tip to the foreman or distribute it yourself. 

Another idea to show your appreciation is to surprise the crew with coffee, water, snacks, breakfast or lunch when they arrive at the worksite. 

Does a roofer need to enter my home?

Generally, a roofer will likely not need to enter your home. The bulk of the work takes place on and around the edges of the roof, where roofing material meets either dormer walls or other structures. So, there is usually no need for person-to-person contact. However, there might be some cases where a roofer needs to enter your home, perhaps to inspect damage or access electrical outlets.

You can take care of any consultation calls using video chats, photos and emails, and payment should take place on virtual platforms. Put together a strategy with any local roofing professionals you contact.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a roofer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Because social distancing is important during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s recommended that you message roofers after narrowing down your choices through an online search of local roofers near you.

Ask if the roofer is willing to conduct an assessment via video chat rather than a traditional site inspection. Additionally, strategize on what other steps you can collectively take to make sure you’re following guidelines on social distancing during this time, including conducting a virtual payment.

Can I use digital payments to pay for roof installation, replacement or repair?

Digital payment platforms are common among roofers, roof repair companies and other services. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely cause more service providers to adopt platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Square Cash, Venmo and others instead of cash or check to decrease the risk of transmission.

You can typically find out whether roofers accept digital payments on their online profiles, and you should confirm this information with them during a consultation call.

I am in the process of working with Complete Roofing. Mike has been very helpful with the insurance company. He has actually gone above and beyond with his help. I will update this review when the roof is finished. I am looking forward to my new roof from Complete Roofing. Complete Roofing did an excellent job on my roof. Mike and his crew finished the job in a day. They did an excellent job cleaning up. My new roof looks great. I received the warranties in the mail about a month after the roof was completed. I highly recommend Complete Roofing.

I contracted a deal with Complete Roofing to put a new fortified roof on my home at 910 Rowell Street , Mobile Ala. I was very happy with the workmanship, quality of work and workers. Mike crew started on time and completed the work in one day just as promise. After the roof was competed his crew immediately started to clean around my home. Except for my new roof you could not tell they had been there. Complete Roofing workers were very professional. The price was competitive with the other companies I interviewed. If I needed another roof I would definitely used complete Roofing.

Mike and his roofing crew showed up a day break and worked tirelessly all day long to get my re-roof job completed in one day, which I did not think possible. More importantly, the roofers correctly performed all the detailed underlayment work required to ensure a water tight roof. My new roof looks great.

We love our new roof. The crew came out on a Saturday and worked diligently until the job was finished. The old shingles were completely removed, new decking installed where needed, and a new fortified roof installed. They did a great job. The debris was continuously cleaned up and the yard rolled with a magnet to pick up stray nails. Many thanks to the Taylor Made roofing crew.

As far as I can tell, the roofing installation went well, and they did a good job. The price was very fair. Following are my observations: 1. There was never an 8 hour day worked. They would work 2 hours and leave, or work 3 or 4 hours, leave for hours and come back later. 2. Contractor agreed to clean the wooden chimney. Did a poor job. 3. Contractor agreed to clean and paint the two gas vents on the roof. They did not do this. 4. Contractor said they would run a magnet over the yard to pick up roofing nails. They did not do this. As a result, I ended up with five roofing nails(in a cluster) in my tire. The tire could not be repaired so I had to buy a new one.($100). 5. Scrap shingles were left on the south side of the house.

Work has been put on hold due to extenuating circumstances on my part. Will resume this business once my issues are resolved, but the relationship so far has been excellent. Mike has been very helpful in helping me resolve my roofing issue. He is very knowledgeable and has acted in a very professional fashion. Would recommend him highly to anyone dealing with roof and/or insurance claim issues.

Still have a leak and have had to contract with an expert roofing company. The supposed repair leaked again after a subsequent rainstorm and ruined an entire wall of Pickwick paneling.

Hardworking and trustworthy!! I highly recommend Tommy and his crew. My new roof looks wonderful. They offered competitive prices, started the job on time and finished early. Tommy responded to all my texts and calls in a timely manner and sent plenty of pictures during the process. I was handling this repair from out of town and appreciated all the updates!

Matt was very helpful from the quote to the last nail.. He assisted in showing the difference between roof colors and how it would make the house look better. Installation and repairs went very well. This type work generates a lot of trash. The cleanup procedure needs to be improved. The payment process was smooth. I would use this company again and refer them too others.
