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 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 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

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 had previous work done by other roofing companies. I was very dissatisfied with the other company work quality. Economy roofing has been the BEST by far. Art took pictures of before, different stages of the process and the finished product. Overall EXCELLENT experience with Economy roofing. I would definitely recommend 👌👍Economy roofing.

Ron did a wonderful job on our roof...we got several quotes and Ron was the best price and performed high quality work. He went the extra mile for us even when he discovered more work needed to be done than originally expected and he didn't raise our price. I highly recommend Ron for any roofing job!

Desert Roof really pulled through for me today. I had water running under my tile roof and I needed immediate repair. He and his worker arrived as scheduled and fixed my problem. He even made a trip to the hardware store to pick up a tongue and groove piece of lumber to complete the job. I was very happy with them. Thanks a ton.

Had a roof that was well past the expiry date and needed to be completely replaced - enter Larry Gonzales and Team All Star Construction. I was a little fearful of the intrusion of a week long project but Team All Star Construction immediately put my fears to rest. I left for work every morning and returned to a completely cleaned up work area day after day... no mess, no fuss, hardly knew they were there except for the amazing transformation - my old beaten roof into a beautiful one! They handled all the permits, kept me in the loop on any issues and progress, was respectful of my property and my neighbors. I am extremely happy with this company and would confidently refer them to everyone. They are also registered with the "Hero" program with available financing if needed. Fantastic! Thank you Larry and please extend my thanks to your wonderful crew. My roof is gorgeous! :)

Would recommend Ron Paveloff Roofing. He made contact with me right away, gave me an est. We had a date to start the work scheduled but he had a cancellation so showed up a few days before and had the work completed and all cleaned up. Thank you.

I contacted Steve to inspect the roof of my room addition due to leaks. Steve was able to come out the following day for an inspection, and he was able to give me a same day quote which was several hundred dollars below the other quotes I had received. Steve and his crew were able to complete the work the same day and although I was at work he stayed in contact with me via cell phone which included pictures. I absolutely would recommend Steve for roof repairs without hesitation. As a matter of fact, I plan to contract with him to do additional construction projects on my property. If there were six stars I would have given it to him.

I appreciated that the project manager came in person and explained the entire process clearly. He patiently answered all my questions (and I had quite a few). I was pleased that the crew completed the job in the promised time frame. Since completion, my neighbors have commented on how nice my roof looks and have said the house looks like new. I am happy with my choice.

What I appriciate most about Art and his company is the professionalism in the way the job was done from start to finish. He was right on time from the first appointment. I explained what I wanted to do. He made a few sugestions and sent the bid in a timely manner. A couple of the other roofing companies sent out the most unproffessional sales people I have ever come across. For example one young man with a glaring hickey on his next couldnt get my name right and tried to intimidate me when I told him I thought his quote was out of line, which it was. I didn't have any of that sort of nonsence with Economy. The job was completed quickly and looks really nice. No time was wasted and no excuses were needed which is exactly what I look for when dealing with contractractors. I would recomend them to somebody who needs a roof done

Mike was great! He did a free estimate and answered all of our questions. We scheduled a day for him to come; when he did come he just knocked to let me know he would be on the roof and it would be pretty noisy. He was at our house for about four hours and everything looked great when he left. The price was great and he was very friendly. He even sent pictures of the work he did and informed us of why we had a leak and explained where other problem areas may be in the future. I highly recommend using All Pro!
