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.

The ROOF no longer leaks thanks to the professional and courteous staff of GBC Roofing Company. Their response to my phone call, setting an appointment for an estimate was immediate. The tech arrived on time. (even though it was pouring rain). When the weather cleared the roof was fixed. Thank you GBC. Highly recommend to others.

Guy Hernandez patched my roof for a reasonable price. It leaked again and I called him and he came back and fixed it (no charge) so it doesn't leak. Wrote up an estimate for a new roof. Nice fellow.

We just bought our home and had a roof inspection that said we should be OK for another 3-5 years. We got a leak within the first month during the first bit of rain. I was frantic about finding someone to come out today. I called Ray and he said he could meet me at my home within 30 minutes. He almost beat me home. He had his men up on the roof checking for problem areas. They were able to glue down some loose areas. I felt that Ray knew roofing and trusted his advice and suggestions with repair and eventual re roofing. We will be contacting him again for any future roofing needs first.

Very impressed with Davis Roofing, they did a great job replacing a section of our roof that was leaking! They quoted exactly what we asked for, didn't try to sell us something we did not need or couldn't afford to take on right now. They got the job done on schedule, communicated clearly and did a beautiful job. I will definitely be calling on them in the future to upgrade the rest of the roof when it's time.

Overall very pleased with the work done on the roof. The crew showed up on time for the project and were very professional. The owner was a little difficult to communicate with, but he showed up the day of the project and was incredibly cordial and very nice to talk to. The roof project was done at a very affordable price.

I recently bought a home and had an issue with cracked roof tiles. I received referral for Maginis Roofing through Thumbtack. Within a couple of days, John came and immediately repaired the tiles. He was professional and efficient and charged a fair price. I would definitely do business with him again.

Alex was able to complete our request within 1 day after speaking with him. We needed some dry rot addressed and remove rusted nails and screw down some shingles. He was professional and knowledgeable about the type of repair. And when he finished, he was meticulous on cleaning the workspace. We would hire Alex and AE Roofing for all our roofing needs.

Alex did an awesome job. We needed a roof replacement shortly after moving in to avoid insurance policy cancellation. He was understanding of our situation and fit us into his schedule last minute. He finished sooner than expected and did an amazing job. Excellent service and communication. We searched awhile for the right company and we couldn't be happier with AE Roofing. You wont find better value in the Sacramento area. Thank you again!
