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. 

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.

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 lifespans for different materials: 

Roofing material Lifespan
Asphalt 20 years
Metal 40-80 years
Copper 70 years
Clay/Concrete 100+ years
Slate 60-250 years
Simulated Slate 10-35 years

There are a variety of roofing materials available and appropriate for residential applications. When choosing roofing materials, it's essential to consider the look you want, your budget and the climate in your area. 

Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular types of roofing materials because they are affordable and relatively easy to install. They come in various colors and styles designed to last decades if properly maintained. Asphalt shingle roofs also have a higher fire resistance than other roofing materials (like wood shakes), making them an ideal choice for homes in areas prone to wildfires or other natural disasters. 

Metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular because they offer superior durability, fire-resistance and energy efficiency compared to traditional asphalt shingle roofs. They are available in various colors and styles, making them a good option if you want more customization options. Metal roofs also require less maintenance than other types of roofing materials. 

Tile roofs are an excellent option for homeowners looking for long-term durability and multiple style options. Tile roofs can have great longevity with proper maintenance, making them an ideal choice for those who don’t want to replace their roof too often. Tile roofs typically cost more than asphalt shingle or metal roofs, so if budget is an issue, this might not be the best option for you. Keep in mind that tile roofs are often made out of clay or concrete — both of which are durable.

Slate roofs are known for lasting a lifetime, which means you probably won't have to replace this type of roof. Slate is durable, a curb-appeal booster and a favorite among homeowners. Just keep in mind it can get a bit pricey.

No matter which type of material you choose, make sure that you hire a top-rated professional who knows how to properly install your home's new roof. Search Thumbtack for roofing contractors and companies in your area today.

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

What happens during a roofing inspection?

Roof inspectors are trained to look for signs of a failing roofing system that could lead to damage — especially water and structural damage. Your home's roofing materials may look great from the ground, but it's difficult to see potential damage unless you take a closer look. A roof inspector can do just that.

During an inspection, the professional will typically look for issues that may have occurred during installation and manufacturing. They’ll also keep an eye out for damage caused by normal wear and tear, as well as extreme weather events. They might also access your attic to see if there are signs of a leak in your roof.

Here’s a short list of common things a contractor will look out for during a roof inspection: 

  • Damage caused by hail, wind, snow and rain
  • Missing, broken, buckling, curling or cracked shingles 
  • Roof decay, rot, moss, mildew and mold
  • Rust around the flashing
  • Damaged chimneys and vents
  • Holes, gaps and punctures that could cause a roof leak
  • Water stains and ventilation issues

Hiring a roofing inspector prevents you from having to do the dangerous work of climbing onto your roof. Plus, inspectors know how to assess potential damage and determine the best way to repair your roof and prevent the need for more expensive repairs in the future. Start searching for a roof inspector on Thumbtack today.

When should I get my roof inspected?

Experts typically recommend that you have your roof professionally inspected at least once a year. But you also may want a licensed professional to inspect your roof during these circumstances: 

  • You're buying or selling a home
  • You're filing an insurance claim
  • Before or after a contractor does major work on your roof

Search the Thumbtack site for experienced roof inspectors near you. You can contact them directly to set up a time to conduct the inspection, and learn more about their pricing structure and services.

How much does it cost for a metal roof?

Metal roofing installation is an attractive option thanks to metal’s long lifespan, hardiness and fire-retardant properties. Nationally, the average cost for metal roofing installation ranges from $6,000 to $20,000.There are different types of metal roofs, each with their own installation needs and materials costs. Roof size also affects your metal roofing installation costs, as do regional labor rates. Roof size is measured in squares; one square equals 100 square feet. Here are some examples of the average cost for a metal roof:

  • Standard metal roof: $120-$150 per square to start, including materials and labor
    • A 30-square roof (a 3,000-square-foot roof) could cost between $3,600 and $4,500 for a typical three-bedroom home.
  • Snap-Loc metal roof: $200-$225 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $6,000-$6,750.
  • Standing seam metal roof: $300 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000 or more.
  • Tuff-Rib metal roof: $250-$350 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $7,500-$10,500.
  • Mid-range metal roof package, including all accessories: $300-$500 per square.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000-$15,000.
  • High-end metal roof package — such as zinc or copper — and all accessories: $1,000-$1,500 per square.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $30,000-$45,000.
Reviews for Tucson roofing professionals

They sent me an estimate for full roof replacement without coming to my home. I had asked for roof repair.

My Spanish tile roof was leaking bad and Rock Roofing was polite, courteous and found the problem immediately. They are fair priced and arrived on time and completed a half roof in a couple of days with high quality materials. I've waited to post this review to see if the roof leaked at all but not a drop after the entire monsoon season. These guys are the real deal

EJ Roofing were the first to respond for giving me an estimate for my needed roof repair. I also liked the fact that they are licensed and bonded, but the thing that satisfied me the most was the wording in the contract with them if the roof were to leak again; they gave me a year contract protecting me from any leak which could arise within the same area of the roof. I found roofing repairs costly for the amount of time it took to repair the roof, and with the small cost in supplies but I didn't mind the cost as long as I'm covered in the unlikely possibility of another leak. furthermore, I felt very comfortable working with everyone at EJ Roofing, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Anyone living within the Tucson area is aware of the severe weather we experienced this past Monsoon system. As a result, my roof became severely damaged and was in need of repair. I contacted 7 different roofing contractors requesting an estimate on my damaged roof. Out of the entire 7 only 1 returned my request for a quote immediately and with complete professionalism. That was Dave Campbell with Rock Roofing. Further, they were very punctual providing the cost information necessary for all repairs needed and an estimated time of completion. Thus far they have stayed in close contact with me making sure I am happy with the results thus far. I couldn’t recommend a more outstanding roofing contractor than Rock Roofing! I know you will not be disappointed!

My roof was in bad shape. It leaked in multiple places. My experience with EJ Roofing was very positive from beginning to end. He diagnosed what needed to be done, point by point, and completed everything within 48 hours, as promised, at a very fair price, and without ever trying to sell me a new roof. Now, I have a sealed, highly reflective roof with a two-year guarantee. Great job! Now, I can face the monsoon with confidence.

I hired Pro Star to take on the challenge of replacing my roof. My experiance with Octavio and his crew was amazing. Octavio and his associates performed an in depth evaluation on what, exactly, needed to be done to fix my roof. Octavio found problems with my roof no other roofing company had mentioned, and these were real reasons, not someone trying to scam me. Pro Star was extremely professional, patient, and wholly committed to bringing in the exact talent to fix my roof as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality. Octavio stayed within the agreed price and completion parameters. I could go on, but I will just say this. If you need any service on your roof, you should call Pro Star for the best experience possible, and high quality work.

E J Roofing's prices are very reasonable. They are prompt to respond to any questions or concerns you have. E J Roofing was able to begin re-roofing my house within a few days of signing the contract. The workman showed up as scheduled and the project was completed on time. It is truly refreshing to have a contractor who shows up on time and finishes on time!

When we had a significant roof leak which caused the ceiling drywall in our bathroom to come down, I contacted several roofers. Emilio came over on a Saturday, inspected both the roof and the bathroom and gave us a very fair quote. His crew showed up as he said that they would and worked quickly and solved our problem. Emilio fixed and repainted the bathroom ceiling so well that you can’t tell that there was ever a problem. His roofing crew did a great job and thoroughly cleaned up. I highly recommend EJ Roofing.

Excellent service! I hired this company to redo my roof. the roof is a hot-mopped roofing system on my house. They made sure i was always aware of what was going on through the process and if anything needed to be replaced they would ask for before doing it. the crew were very hard workers, respectful and professionals. everything was done on schedule from start to finish. i would be more than happy to recommend them to other people.

I requested three quotes and all three contractors described in detail what was needed to get my roof done. Quotes were closed in price but chose Improved Roofing of AZ because Mr. Flores was the only one who took the time to speak with me and explain how he was addressing the problem areas (took photos of the sections in need of repairs) and recommendations for maintaining the roof in good shape. I will use this contractor for any future needs and highly recommend him.
