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.

Donny was responsive, quick and informative. He inspected the whole roof after fixing what we talked about as well as cleaned up a few other loose roof flashings and roof tiles. I appreciate his honesty.

Don responded immediately to our request to have our damaged roof inspected, and fixed. Don accommodated us to fit in his schedule the same day! Don was the first to respond to our roof repair inquiry on Thumbtack. He was very professional. Don gave us sweet deal, and was able to repair our roof tiles instantly. We strongly recommended Don for all your roof repairs.

Brian and Sosa Roofing did a great job assessing the roof issues and repairing the damage. Brian went above and beyond in setting up a convenient time to meet me to provide the initial review and quote. He started the project timely and he arrived when he said he would-which was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Brian and Sosa Roofing and I will use them in the future should the need arise.

Ricardo Jimenez was amazing. He evaluated my roofing issue and was very honest about what he could and could not do on my roof. He then fixed my fridge door, looked at my faucet and I found out that he could do a lot of the handyman type of things I need done at my house. I was very happy with him and am excited that he will be helping me out at my house.

During the entire process- from the assessment and estimate for the roof repair/replacement , to the last tile being laid, to the final walk around and clean up, Alex, his son and the crew were true professionals! Alex and son are very friendly and honest people. It seemed like I was talking and working with old family friends. The crew was on time everyday and worked tirelessly to complete the job- so much so that the job was completed in 3 days. This was 2 days ahead of schedule. Alex is very appreciative of military families. Once he learned both my husband and I are retired AF, he provided a very generous discount to us. It was truly a pleasure working with AWM Roofing. I highly recommend Alex and team for any of your roofing needs.

We had the hardest time looking for someone to do this project. Our balcony/patio roof was damaged from the last years and the recent monsoon. Resorted to Thumbtack and found Mario. Had a few quotes from a few roofers (outside of Thumbtack) but they were charging ridiculously unfair rates. Mario gave us a genuinely decent price and did an incredible job! He is communicative all throughout the process. He gave us updates and suggestions. He is very polite and professional. We are extremely pleased with the work he has provided. Overall, we definitely would recommend this company to anyone needing roof repairs or replacement.

we had a reoccurring small stain in our living room. I had attempted roof repair a couple of times to no avail. I contacted Lonnie and he arrived that afternoon. He completely diagnosed the problem and proposed a fix. Remove a portion of the tile and replace the felt with a long term barrier. We agreed on the price and he returned at the appointed day and time and completed the repair as promised. Very nice professional Man and Son team.
