Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

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.

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.

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: 

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

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. 

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 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.

Miguel was quick to respond to my request to have my roof repaired. He showed up on time, gave me an estimate and was able to repair my roof at that time. His price was very reasonable and he even took pictures to show me the areas that needed to be repaired. Miguel took pictures of the repairs, and texted all of them to me. He was very courteous and not only explained what he was going to do, but guaranteed his work as well! I would definitely recommend him.

I really wanted to recommend this company but too many weird mistakes occurred. First of all, Ramon and Art were easy to talk to and gave me details on what will happen. Art is usually responsive and easy to work with. However, it got a bit more difficult to communicate when his workers were busy and unreliable. Since I’m new to all this, I didn’t really know what to look for and how to handle things. First advice: Watch the workers to make sure roof wood are all replaced and just make sure the work is done correctly. I made the mistake of paying the remaining balance before fully inspecting the work because they said they can come back anytime if I find anything wrong. Instead I’ll have another team handle the fixes after two weeks of no action from this company. Since I don’t want to go into details, I’ll just outline my experience below. - Needed a roof repair for the Patio and garage and possibly the main house. Also needed the facia and metal drip edge replaced. - Roman Davis (Product Specialist) came by to measure and inspect the roof. Gave me an estimate and explained the roof shingles replacement process. - Art Gaviola 9Sales Manager) gave me the official Estimate/Proposal. I rejected the initial one that included the main house since it would cost about $15,000. Worried about the extra cost to replace the wood so I had Art come by to give me a better estimate with the wood included. - Since they also install Alumawood Patios, I ended up choosing Alumawood over replacing parts of the wood and roofing on the original patio. - New price estimate was $10k plus LED lights ended up being $10,700 Total. - Ended up with three separate pairs of team. 1) Roofers 2) Facia Wood 3) Alumawood Patio Installers - Replacing the roof took two days, first day focused on removing the old roof and replacing the wood. We had water damage and a hole in the garage. - Third Day, they broke down the old Patio. - That following Saturday, the Facia team showed up and were upset because they said that the facia should have been replaced FIRST before the roof shingles were replaced. That team left and came back the following Monday and had to worked with the new shingles installed. Now the metal drip edges are incorrectly installed because they had to replace the wood underneath it. Job was completed in a day. On the proposal, the wood was supposed to be primed, it wasn’t. - As for the Alumawood Patio, it took about three weeks until it was installed because of Covid-19. - In the middle of waiting for it I noticed that the Facia wasn’t properly installed in the front of the house. It should have a frame, instead the wood was not balanced and overlapping. I had Art bring the guys back. They came on a Friday and told me that it’s a lot of work and asked if they can come back Monday instead. The problem? I scheduled another team to start priming and painting that weekend. So If they can’t do it now, I said, I’ll have the other team fix it. They decided to go ahead and fix it that day, it took a few hours. Not sure why they would delay it. - Fastforward a few weeks later. The Alumawood Patio was being installed on a Friday. They got a lot of work completed but they needed more time. They came back Saturday to finish but they seemed to be in a hurry. The electrical guy seemed very annoyed at my requests to have separate switches for some of the patio lights. The switch and outlets were upside down. Silicone didn’t quite fill the sides of the patio that attaches to the house (rain) and left parts of the patio dirty. The bigger issue was the fan installation. Since it was a smart fan, it had more wires than normal fans. First they tell me that it’s too heavy and that I need to get a new ceiling fan from Home Depot and that ANY of those fans will work (but what if it’s too heavy?) before I was about to leave for Home Depot, they were actually installing the fan I originally bought,. The weight wasn’t the issue, it was because the electrical guy didn’t know how to wire it. They also didn’t attach the power so now I’m not even sure if the fan works properly (two weeks later) - I’ve asked Art to have Eddie or anyone working on the patio to come by and fix the silicone and outlets but no one has showed up after promises that someone will. - Also noticed that the wood in the garage roof didn’t seem like it was replaced. (after paying extra for it). Art came by to check it out and tried to convince me that the roof is fine and to call them if we have issues. Well, I contact them and after two weeks, I’m having another team handle the job. - I liked working with Art but if the multiple teams need to work better together and the Alumawood guys need to STOP RUSHING and just get the work done properly.

I had several contractors come out and give me a proposal to replace my roof. After reviewing 4 different proposals i could not believe how much of a mark up on labor some of the other companies were charging me. every company was using the same material but the prices were several thousand dollars difference. David came out and was very professional, and everything was done on the time frame that he said it would be done in. the workers got her on time and left no mess behind everyday, and at the completion of the job they all walked around and made sure that there was no nails or trash laying around. I will be referring ADG to friends and family. Good job Guys I am very happy!!!
