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 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 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

$10 per square foot

Slate Roof

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. 

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.

Ubaldo did an excellent job on my roof. His crew was on time, courteous and professional. The job came right in on budget and was finished on time. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a roof.

They said after further review today a large section of the the roof was not initially properly inspected the paper needs to be replaced on the roof and the vents weren’t properly sealed. They still leak. We talked about a bird droppings problem but the left side of the roof was not sealed after it was cleaned out ...I would pray these problems would’ve been brought to my attention on the first visit I told you I had leaks and now I have more totally disappointed that I have more problems than before and I paid $1800!

Mr. Aguilar was prompt and professional. He even worked on the roof when the temperature was over 100 degrees. Until it rains again the quality of the repairs is unknown.

We were pretty stressed with a leak that happened on Thanksgiving day. Aguilar roofing came the following Saturday and fixed it quickly. The repair has held up during some very heavy rain!

Ubaldo was prompt to show up to fix a leak in my roof. He got right to work and patched my roof. The problem is the patch did not cure the leak. He has returned twice (both times on Sundays) but to no avail. The leak, however seems to be intermittent and, except for the first visit I haven't gotten Ubaldo here when the leak is actually leaking. I can't blame Ubaldo for that so I'm forced to consider the matter closed if not resolved. But I recommend Ubaldo for his effort, energy, and professionalism. He would have gotten 5 stars if not for that blankey-blank phantom leak.

Ubaldo Aguilar was the only one of the three contractors who took the time to actually go onto the roof and show me what needed to be done before giving me his estimate. As it turns out, his estimate also happened to be the lowest one of the three.

Mr Aguilar, team delivered a performance for the ages. With a crew of 9, 3000sf of roof removed, dry rott repaired, new vents, and new tiles laid in one day. My neighbors watched with amazement at the precision in which they worked. Neat, professional, organized and cost effective. Mr Aguilar is honest, knowledgeable and works to ensure Customer Satisfaction. Strongly recommend.

My husband set up an appointment to meet for a roof inspection. We called him when we got into town (after driving an hour and a half) and he had no recollection of the previous weeks’ conversation or the appointment. He did offer to meet up with us later in the day but our confidence in him and his future ‘recollections’ was pretty low so we declined.

Mr Aguilar responded very quickly by phone and was able to schedule my repair for the next day. He was very quick to come and look at what was needed. He found other items that rquired attention, clearly showing us what was needed. The price was very reasonable. Mr Aguilar communicated everything clearly to us in a very friendly way. We highly recommend this roofer for all your roofing needs!
