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 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.

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.

Franco's did a fantastic job with my roof. They replaced the whole roof and gutters in just 5 days. The team was friendly, professional, clean and affordable. I would recommend Gerardo Franco to anyone needing either roof repair or a new roof and gutters.

Gerardo was always on time and very easy to communicate with. His crew came in on Friday afternoon, took down the old roof, and I had a new roof by Saturday afternoon. They cleaned up the debris really well too. The craftsmanship of the roof is great. I'm incredibly happy with the work that he's done and I look forward to him replacing my windows in the future.

Franco's roofing shows up as promised and delivers quality with a reasonable price. They spotted multiple trouble areas in my old roof, communicated clearly what's needed to fix them and provided before/after photos to show how it was done. This comes with a two-year, transferrable warranty, which can stretch to 15 with future service. Gerardo is super friendly and professional and knows his stuff. I will absolutely hire him again for any future roof maintenance.

Mr. Franco installed a new roof on top of my flat garage. The garage roof was in bad shape so he installed new wood where needed. His quote was the most affordable of all three quotes I received. For my purposes, his work satisfied the job.

Mel redid our roof. It was complicated as it’s a flat roof but he and his crew did a nice job redoing it. He worked with our plumbing and electrical subs to coordinate the job and also came over at 4 am to cover our roof when it unexpectedly started raining! We had leaking water everywhere but he came right away with a huge role to cover the house. Mel has high integrity and stuck to his word. I would recommend him and would hire him again.

Well priced compared to other contractors. Worked with the problem and didn't try to inflate the project, like other contractors tried to do. Glad I went with Wang's roofing. Project took a little longer than expected, and a little rough around the edges, but happy with the end result and would recommend Wang's roofing.

They did a great job. I am going to have them come back in the Spring to do some more roof and gutter repair work.

You only want to have to replace your roof once, and it can be difficult to find a quality roofer. Bay Valley Contractors is the best roofing company in the East Bay. They deliver on time, are extremely responsive, and while they work your property is left in suck a clean state that you won't realize work is being done! Since Bay Valley Contractors sets such a high bar for quality construction, I will only work with them for future projects.

I can not rave enough about my experience with Bay Valley. From the start, Edward wanted to know my needs and was very informative when explaining the company, the project scope and roofing in general. The first visit/meet at my home shined when compared to the 4 other roofers I received quotes from. Edward got on the roof and took detailed drawings and then gave me a quote within a reasonable time frame with cost and recommendations. Not all the roofers got on the roof nor did they pay such attention to detail in their proposals. When comparing quotes, what sold me was the years they've been in business, the warranties they offered, the quality of materials they used and the knowledge they had about roofing. When it came down to it, I was able to negotiate what I wanted and I feel they listened to me every step of the way and gave me a fair price. I also picked the solar company they are aligned with because I was impressed with their knowledge, company and their professionalism as well. I feel safe in the hands of Bay Valley and am happy with my choice.

Mel and his guys did a great job on my roof repair. The price was excellent, the crew was professional, and no leaks when it rained a few days later. Will definitely hire again if needed!

Cesar has been great to talk to and work with. He gave us a reasonable quote for some roof repair work we needed to do. He was very communicative and I really appreciated his follow-through. When he came to our house to do the work, his team was friendly and got the job done quickly. If I need any more work done on my roof, I'd definitely reach out to him again. Thanks!

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to start a project with Sonny and team, as I had an issue arise with a separate project. He did come down to my house to review the roof, show me material examples and then later followed up with a quote on labor/material, which I eventually will get back into touch with him for when I’m ready. His approach and response were definitely professional and look forward to working with him in the future, or referring him to family for roof related work.

Mel and his team did an outstanding job in replacing our roof and demolishing our carport. I could not be be any happier with the crew's professionalism, work ethic, and punctuality. I would highly recommend them! I received several estimates but what I appreciated about Mel is that he really took his time to inspect the roof and was extremely honest with regards to any potential issues that may come up during the replacement. He is extremely knowledgeable and I immediately trusted him to do the job and I'm glad I did! Amazing work!

Daniel pays attention to details and was able to work with me to replace my roof shingles. He was up front and honest about price estimates and went into detail on what was to be done, something that a lot of roofers didn’t do with me when we were looking into estimates; he actually went onto the roof with me and pointed out every nook and cranny that may be affected, which I appreciated. Other roofers automatically told me the whole thing was bad and I’d have to replace the whole roof. Daniel’s estimate was low but he said it may increase depend on any wood rot or anything else that may need to get replaced. After ripping off my shingles, Daniel brought me up to inspect the issues he found. That is what differentiates his company from others, in my opinion. Material receipts were provided, so no additional costs were unknown or hidden to me. I’d definitely recommend him and his team to family and friends.

Gerardo and Manuel were professional, on-time, and finished the repair job within a few hours. They get a set price, rather than others who would charge by the hour. The roof was fixed much faster than I expected, and they have a nice 2-year warranty

I was in desperate need of a roofer to help repair a leak my house in Oakland. I called around and everyone was most were booked until next Spring. Daniel responded to my inquiry and said he was available for a free estimate. Although English is not his first language, Daniel was very responsive via phone and text. He came over the same day and quoted me something reasonable. He explained how he would fix the leak (temporary) and once we decided to move forward with the job scheduled to come work on the roof the next clear day. He was clean and required very little supervision. Raked up leaves on roof and the deck after the job was done and I have had no issues with the roof since. He also came back to put up a second coat of sealer as promised, after I had paid him in full. I was a little hesitant to hire Daniel without reviews, but am happy I did. Thank you Daniel.

Monty and his team are professional, responsive, and communicative. They did a fantastic job replacing my (VERY) old roof - the quality of their work is fantastic and they even finished ahead of schedule. On top of that, they went above and beyond to replace some old wood and install gutters and rainspouts as well. Highly recommended.

Was prompt in both his communication and his work. He took photos of my roof before cleaning it and then after and pointed out a spot above my clay tiles that had separated from the stucco that needed caulking. I found him pleasant, easy to communicate with and very professional! highly recommend!

Gerardo was one of 4 quotes I got for work on our roof. His detailed estimate with recommendations and photographs was second to none. His communication throughout the project was terrific. The work proceeded without a hitch and to a hight standard. I cannot recommend more highly. The 2 year guarantee is a nice bonus!

Just completed the build install for a tile awning, and painted to match the rest of our roofing. Really happy with Daniels work and overall experience working with him. He is professional, courteous and efficient. He was responsive to the job req, immediately offered to come by to assess the project and provide a price. When he arrived be offered recommendations on what would look best and fit the needs of the door based on the existing structures and light. Within 2 days of my approved quote he had dropped off a tile sample and finished the job in 1 morning. He checked in to get my approval on the bigger decisions before continuing, which I really appreciate (nothing worse then not having a say in the final outcome!) . Highly recommend him and will call him again likely in the bad weather to fix some leaks on our flat roof.

Gerardo was punctual and fast-working. Very communicative and answered all my questions about the work on our roof. We talked through potential solutions to our issue (poor attic ventilation) and worked out a price and schedule. Really blown away by his professionalism and his team's hard work! If you're on the fence about hiring him, please don't hesitate.

Gerardo Franco did a fantastic job of finding the problems on our roof and replacing what he couldn’t repair. He explained the problems and repairs to with with patience and clarity. I found him trustworthy and knowledgeable. He also gave me great value for the price paid. I took a chance on him after reading some reviews, I highly recommend that you do too.
