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

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 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.

I checked out everyone suggested on thumbtack and found Jeff to be fully qualified by having a construction and roofing license, workman's comp, and bonded. I had a roof leak on the house and needed to replace the roof on the patio. He kept me informed and did an excellent job, I highly recommend his services.

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.

Shawn is a true professional who relieved us of a lot of worry. We’ve had a minor leak every time a bug storm came throughout haven’t been able to fix or find someone to address it. Sean reached out the same day and was upfront about estimates and costs. You can tell Shawn cares about his work. He was careful in checking the entire roof and ensuring we knew about other issues. He even walked my dad through how to resolve some issues with the roof tiles in the future and left us with some skills and tools for next time. I’d recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a professional to do a solid job. We’re going to sleep better during storms from now on.

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.

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!
