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 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 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.

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.

Steve is an amazing roofing technician. He knows the history of his trade and truly cares about his clients! Unlike most Arizona roofers, he is familiar with the regulations that other states require, and he follows them to ensure the perfection of a roofing job. I would absolutely recommend Steve and Sunset Roofing to friends and family.

George was a pleasure to work with. I was in need of a price on a roof on a property I was trying to buy and he gave me his professional analysis of the condition and the cost it would take to repair it. Will call him for future roofing projects.

Hello H.
We needed solar panels removed and the roof underneath repaired along with a few other shingle repairs. Jared & his team got us on their schedule quickly and the roof looks fantastic! We will definitely be hiring them again in the future!

Steve did an AWESOME job. We replaced the back side of a roof to satisfy a buyer. Steve was honest with us and let us know the old roof was fine and didnt need to be replaced. The price was good and the work was excellent. Super beautiful job Steve! Thanks!

Oh man these guys are great. Dealt with George and he is just super smart and has a TON of great information that I truly didn't even consider before meeting up with him. I literally saved $900 based on his advice. George and his crew installed a new roof and I couldn't be happier with his pricing and my new roof. You can't go wrong getting your new roof with Arizona Native Builders. Highly recommended! Thanks George and AZNB.

Steve was easy and fast to get me a quote on my roofing project. I needed a professional opinion and cost to repair a roof on a property I was in contract to purchase. Steve made it out the next day and got me the information I needed. He is knowledgeable of the current building code and has the customer's best interest.

Brian came out to the house to take a look at our roof and within 45 minutes everything was taken care of. Not only did Brain come out on a Saturday, but he was on time to the minute. Each step of the way he made sure my fiancé and I understood what needed to be fixed. I would HIGHLY recommend Brian and his team to anyone with roofing needs.

Evolution's price to replace our roof was very competitive. Gilbert and Alethea were especially responsive whenever I had any questions. They checked with us every day during the job to make sure we were happy with their work. They cleaned up at the end of each day to make sure no nails or other debris were left on the ground. I'd definitely hire them again if we ever need another roof replaced.

We have a very old roof and had a windstorm that knocked some tiles down. The McMillans responded to our request and came out right away. Along with the wind damage several patches of roofing were worn out and needed to be replaced along with some severe warping on our porch. They were able to fix everything within a couple of hours and guaranteed their work. I will definitely call them again for future repairs or replacement.

Darren and his crew came out on time and did everything they said they would do without any surprise charges. They replaced the entire underlining on our tile roof and installed bird stops to give the house a newer look and keep critters out. Thanks from the Price family!

WOW! Talk about taking the stress a-way of getting a project done long distance. Home under contract, needed deck repair and resurface. Where to start? Used Thumbtack and got an immediate contact from Jim at JWF Roofing. He went out that morning and looked at my project. Gave me a quote! Got my BINSR from the buyer the next day – needed to get it done. Called Jim to schedule. He got the project done the next day. Showed up when he said he would, sent me pictures as the project progressed and then upon completion. Would totally recommend to family and friends. Was the BEST quote, not only dollar-wise (I don’t always use lowest bid), but service all around. Quick response, answered phone calls, communication during and after project was great and no extra costs at the end. A big job checked off my list. Thanks, Jim!
