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.

Reviews for Pasadena roofing professionals

Arana roofing did an amazing job for us replacing our roof. Avi was very straightforward and knowledgeable about the work that needed to be done, and he was always easy to get ahold of if we had questions throughout the project. We are very happy with our new roof and would recommend them to anyone looking to do the same for their house!

I needed a roof replaced on my mid century house. I called several roofers for bids. None of them were as Professional as J&M roofing. First, Jose, was punctual. When he said he would be there he was. He started and finished the job by the projected time he gave me. Second, Jose answered all the question I had about materials, such as to maximize deflection of the sun coming into the house. He was super knowledgeable and brought multiple samples to show me my options. Third and very important to me was the organized and clean manner in which they tore off the old roof and put the new one on. He has an AMAZING bunch hard working guys! I would recommend Jose and J&M roofing to anyone looking for a quality roof!

So happy with how responsive and quick to fix the issue Shawn was... he came out and assessed the leak in our roof and had the job taken care of the same day. Also, he’s a really kind person, which goes a long way these days. Definitely consider Boose Roofing for your next project!

David and his team from ADG construction are the most professional and knowledgeable roofer that I have had the honor to work with this summer. They arrive on time for both the free consultation and also on the day of the work. During the consultation, they examed the area very thoroughly, and explained how and why they are going to repair the roof with their approach in details. That is how I decide to work with them instead of other companies. As they appreciate clear communication and put their customers at ease by answering all questions and concerns. They also did fantastic work for my roof leak. They not only made custom flashing for my chimney, put an extra layer of membrane to cover the top of my brick chimney, but also went the extra mile to paint and color match the new materials with my existing roof tiles! After the work is done. they show me how to maintain my roof from future leak by cleaning the falling leafs and more. They worked from early morning all the way to sunset and left my house with a smile. They even cleaned up and tidy things up before they left. Everyone wears mask on each visit to my house. I am truly impressed and could not recommend their service more!

Avi was excellent to work with. I learned so much about roofs just talking to him on the first visit! I got honest feedback and I knew he had my best interest in mind. Extremely professional and responsive at all hours. Highly recommend!

Max was knowledgeable, provided a competitive bid for our work and scheduled the project right away. Max and his crew arrived "on the dot" with all of the materials and equipment that they needed (this was refreshing as we've had so many repair crews arrive and leave to go get what they need!). Max gave instructions to his crew to make sure the contract was followed. The crew of two young men worked diligently and completed our job in a workmanlike manner in a single day. This work was done to correct leakage in a dogleg valley on our steep concrete tile roof. I also liked the easy-to-use contract process and Max's prompt replies to questions I had.
