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.

  • Asphalt shingle roof: 20 years
  • Metal roof: 50 years
  • Slate roof: 100+ years (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?

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.

Reviews for Murrieta roofing professionals
Hanh T.
I have a damaged/leaking roof that needs repair. Steve came out to inspect the roof and to provide an estimate. He was knowledgeable and very thorough. He spent a great deal of time explaining in detail what needed to be done and answered all my questions. He also took the time to answer questions about another project that wasn't even related to the roof project. Steve was super friendly and professional.

Excellent communication between Stephen and myself on this project. From the estimate all the way to the invoice and payment process, it was quick and effortless. Roof repair was done quickly. Will need to wait until the next rain to be absolutely certain but the progress pictures that Stephen provided showed a very professional job. Give Stephen a call today as he does more than just roof repair.

The experience was professional we put in a request for an emergency on a leaky roof and they were able to fit me in within 24 hours. They completed the inspection and the fix just in time before the rain came. The work quality was excellent and they showed me before and after pictures of the problem and the solution to the problem. They even called the next day to see how the roof handled the rain! Thank you for giving the comfort of our home back!

Erik responded to my request for a roofer to repair water damage/leaking covered patio with a quote of $8,000, and I asked how does he come up with a quote without seeing it first? His response was from satellite images and photos I sent. Ive had several other roofers respond and all said they needed to come out to take a look at the roof first before providing a quote, which I expected. I got quotes from these other roofers and none of these quotes even came close to $8,000. If Erik actually came out to look at the roof he probably would of been able to provide a more accurate quote. Also, he never even explained what $8,000 consisted of. Never explained the course of action, what exaclty would he be doing i.e. would he just be repairing the damaged areas or would he be taking down the whole roof and installing a new one? I was left assuming for $8,000 the whole roof would be taken down and a new one would be installed not a simple repair of the damaged areas. I could of responded and simply asked, but he's the professional and should explain what his quote consisted of. As a professional he should of taken the time to come look at the damaged roof so he could provide an accurate quote and explain the scope of work that needed to be done.

5 stars is not enough! Stephen rushed right out and patched my roof and stopped the leak. He explained everything as he was doing it, giving me best and worse case scenarios. He even went so far as to start taking down the saturated dry wall and insulation to help speed drying and prevent more mold from growing. I will definitely be using Box Construction again and referring him to all my friends.

Brian was great! On time. Didn't oversell. We had broken tiles on one of our 4 rental properties. We asked him to inspect all four homes while we were repairing one, if there were issues, we'd repair all at once. He inspected and did not find any issues with the other home. Honest, competitive and quick. Inspection/quote one day. Repair the next. I'd highly recommend and will use again should we need any future roof repairs.

I hired Box Construction for roof repair. He replied to my inquiry immediately, which was great, because I had a leak in one of my upstairs rooms and a big rain storm was headed our way. He came out same day to give an estimate. His roofer came out the next day! The roofer was polite and professional. Then he fixed the roof and I paid Box Construction. A heavy rain came the next day. And the leak wasn’t completely fixed. I still got a dark stain on my ceiling. But this is where they really shined, because Box Construction answered the phone right away and sent his roofer back out in the middle of the heavy rains. The roofer went back up on my roof and figured out what had been missed the first time. It turns out that it was a little bit more of a complicated job near the chimney than I was quoted for, but they didn’t charge me extra. They just wanted to fix it right and prevent water damage to my home. It rained very hard all through the rest of the week and there were no more leaks. Now, with any company, sometimes things go wrong with a repair or Home improvement job. That’s when you can really get the opportunity to see how much they care about getting it right. They came out in the middle of a rainstorm to make it right and didn’t try to charge me extra. They responded to my phone calls immediately, every time, instead of dodging me and trying to make the next buck on the next job. They could have made me wait a week for an appointment and my home would have been ravaged by the weather. I didn’t want to leave this review until a couple of good hard rains came, just to make sure that it was 100% fixed and I was 100% satisfied with Box Construction. It has probably been almost a year since the repair and it’s is still holding strong!

Aal came out as promise and review the work that needed to be done. I inspected the work prior to him coming out and his findings corresponded with what I saw. Aal fixed the problem and went out of his way to do some preventive maintenance which will save me money in the long run. Aal’s is a young man who is starting his own business and he’s off to a good start. The man knows what he’s doing. I would definitely recommend him to do roof repairs or full installs. Thanks Aal, great job!

My rental home’s roof leaking was fixed by a roofer two years ago, but he did it wrong and it started to leak again. Renato responded to my inquiry immediately and he managed to inspect the leaking at the same day. He explained the problem clearly and sent me pictures for the area that needed to be fixed. Renato was able to replace the underlayment and broken tiles one day after. He did an excellent job, as shown in the pictures. Tomorrow will rain again but I am worry free now. I will not hesitate to hire him again in the future. I feel the price is right for the work he has done.
