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.

Reviews for Los Angeles roofing professionals

We had a big tree fall on our house and needed a new roof. Solid Roofing came in with the best bid by far and it appears we now have a very nice roof. We decided to upgrade our insulation at the same time, and Solid Roofing arranged all that, and we are pleased with the result. I felt I had to bug people a bit to get from 98% to 100%, but that's probably normal with any construction project and maybe I am pickier than most. I would use Solid Roofing again but hope there's never a need. I think the current roof will be here long after my wife and I are gone.

Good analysis of roof problem, neat work & on time before the rains. Garage & skylite leak repaired professionally. Next morning I woke up to rain but no leaks. Vince is friendly and helpful doesn't suggest you take the whole roof off! Would recommend since they are fair and do roofs only! I hired an all around handyman previous it was not good. Better to compare & hire a specialist for the job!

I Hired Vincent Alvarado with VA Roofing to repair about 20 Spanish Roof Tiles that were ruined from falling Palm Tree leaves and after that same palm tree was recently trimmed. Vince was very professional, gave me a detailed estimate. He was hired and was able to do the job right away. He matched the existing tile and completed the job in a half of a day. He cleaned up after the job was done. I was so pleased with his work and would highly recommend him for any roof repair or roof replacing job if asked. Two thumbs Up!

Power Roofing team completed new roof on two-story 17-unit apartment building. They were very efficient and affordable. It was done ahead of schedule and it looks great. Alex obviously stands by his work, and took the time to come back after it was completed, to answer some questions we had regarding the life of the roof. Alex and his crew were very hardworking and professional. I would definitely recommend them to others.

Santiago stuck to his estimate and provided me an excellent new roof on my house and managed to fully fix a terrible leaking roof in my garage after it had been supposedly (but not actually) “repaired” 3 times by someone else. I’d definitely use them again.

Their pricing was fair, their work quality was excellent and their customer service was responsive and friendly. They did a whole new roof in 6 working days as promised. David explained the choices as to type of roof very clearly so I could choose wisely. When something unanticipated arose he didn’t try to argue that scope of work changed and he stuck with his original estimate. He and his wife who runs the office were responsive to requests and questions as the job progressed. They were both polite and friendly. If I owned a second house I would want them to do the roof.

I got several quotes for my roofing issue and primitive told me I needed three times the amount of work and to resurface a portion of the roof. Other companies mentioned I just need to clean out my gutters. Ultimately primitive was three times the cost of the other companies for a problem that I solved myself with a shop vac

I had a maintenance roofing project which this company did. A job others wanted twice the money for doing the same work. Once the job began it was finished timely. It’s hard to get companies to work with your budget but Alfa One will. I plan to use them in the future when I do need a new roof. Thank you Alfa One
