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 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. 

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

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.

How can I find out if a roofer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a roofer is an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by visiting your state or city’s government website. Local governments are providing up-to-date information for residents during this time.

A national guideline is available on CISA’s website, Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page addresses 16 different categories of essential infrastructure sectors, but note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Eric was efficient, quick and charged more than a fair price. I would never call anyone else to work on my roof. If you've got ANY problem with your roof, call reliant roofing, period.

Need a roof repaid done on our roof that is 17 years old. Was looking for an a patch job rather than a full new roof given my current situation. Did a quick repair same day for a reasonable $900

JWF Roofing has done an excellent job fixing my roof. Jim, responded the same day and made clear what they are planning to do. Two days later JWF Roofing came, cleaned the roof, found the source of the leak and repaired it quickly. When finished they sent picture of the roof area that was responsible for the leak and the same area after the repair was completed. I am very satisfied with the quality of work, the timely response and the 5 year warranty that JWF provides. Well done!

I hired Alex to help me with a leak in my roof. His response time to my inquiry was very quick, and he resolved my issue with my roof on the very same day. His honesty and no-nonsense approach we're very refreshing. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for honesty and integrity in the roofing business. If I have any further roofing issues in the future, he will be the first person I call.

Great experience with this company. They responded quickly and was professional,courteous, and reliable. JWF Roofing inspected my roof on Saturday and had my repairs done by Monday. I will be using this company again.

Sosa Roofing identified the problem by actually digging down to the nuts and bolts of the cause of leak. Poor workmanship by the builder was the cause. Completely reworked the roof and used proper materials to avoid future leaks. Quality of work was great and cost was appropriate. I would recommend this company to others looking to have your roof done right. Thank you

Steven came out and gave a quote to replace my porch roof and do some minor repairs on the rest of the tile roof. His price was awesome, but I ended up not needing to get the work done.

Brian from Sosa Roofing responded quickly and came out when other companies didn't even respond or couldn't come out for a couple of weeks. He gave me a free estimate and said he could get the work done within two days. After finally getting another quote I asked Sosa Roofing to proceed with the work and luckily they were able to get the work done within 24 hours to beat the upcoming forecasted storms. Brian also provided good advice related to insurance on other roof related topics. Highly recommend Brian and Sosa Roofing.

Alex and his crew replaced an entire patio roof for us including fascia board and plywood replacement , and some minor work on our larger clay roof in a matter of a day. They came in and gave us a great quote, less than most of the other places we checked out, but it was the personality and willingness to get the job done right the first time that sold us. Thanks again AWM Roofing and we'll be sure to keep you in mind for all our referrals.

I was in the process of selling my house, and I wanted to make some repairs on my roof before the inspection date. I reached out to Jim and touched base with him, and he was able to come out sooner than expected! After he checked out the trouble spot on the roof, Jim was able to give me a quote on the spot and was able to make repairs that same day as well. Not only did he give me a reasonable quote, but he also promised that if the inspector found any issues with the roof, he would come back and fix any of those issues free of charge. Long story short, the results of the inspection came through, and there wasn’t a single issue with the roof. Would highly recommend Jim to anyone that expects quality work and great customer service!
