Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How can I find out if a roofer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a roofer is an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by visiting your state or city’s government website. Local governments are providing up-to-date information for residents during this time.

A national guideline is available on CISA’s website, Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page addresses 16 different categories of essential infrastructure sectors, but note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.  

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.

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.

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: 

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

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 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.

Very responsive, and professional. Punctual and easy to work with. His foreman Dave is an asset to the company. Would happily hire Baja Roofing for any other roofing project. Just the best for a healthy roof.

Direct Roofing was so helpful for my husband and I. While we initially thought we had a roofing issue it turned out to be something different. Direct Roofing was very courteous, gracious and extremely helpful despite all of this!

No follow up. Was the first to respond and setup appointment, but never follow up with quote for both repair and new roof. Will be going with another contractor for a new roof.

Direct Roofing was the last of 5 companies to provide an estimate to me to replace roof. They provided the clearest SOW and estimated cost. Very easy to work with and straight forward. Thanks Daniel

Rudy and his team were outstanding. They showed up on time, cleaned up everyday and the roof looks great. Even though there were a couple minor hiccups, Rudy and his team made sure everything was completed correctly and to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend The Roof Masters for your new roof!

I used George McLeod Roof Repair to install new ridge shingles on my roof and to replace a torch down roof on a small porch. I had three bid from different companies and George McLeod's was the most reasonable. They completed the work in one day, cleaned up everything, and called when they knew they would be a few minutes late. They found shingles that were a good match for my existing roof. I was pleased with their work and friendly attitude.

My job was for the repair of my roof. They did an excellent job, were very professional, and reasonably priced. And, issues with my roof beyond the repair were pointed out so they could be fixed before they became a problem. I'm very satisfied.

This company really treated us well. The roof repairs were done beautifully. They took before and after images of the damage and the price was excellent. Out of all the companies we got quotes from they were the only ones who actually got on the roof before giving the estimate. Truly professional, prompt and considerate. We will be hiring them in the next 3-5 years for a new roof with solar. Very happy to have them on our home repair team. ALSO, they do deck repair so we will most likely have them here soon for that. Thanks Advanced Roof Leak Solutions!!

We had 3 leaks in different areas of our roof. When Mike and George came over for the estimate they were very nice and spent an hour or so looking at the leaks and the rest of the roof. He showed me pics of the problems and told me what he could do. He was very nice and honest. They have been doing roofs for 30 years and know what they are doing. The price was great. Mike and George fixed our roof in two days and did an awesome job. We will have them fix other areas as well. If you want good, honest, hardworking roofers, these are the guys to call!

The estimate was easy to understand and reasonably priced. It was a small roofing repair and they did the work in one day. Very professional and nice people to work with. The very next day it rained and my roof passed the water test. Hi quality work. I would highly recommend this company.

George and his workers were amazing! I have two very old rentals which needed a full tear out. Thinking there was only two layers of shingles to be removed ended up being five. This was not a problem but did require more work on George's part without extra cost. Unfortunately the roofs needed extensive wood repair and replacement and would take an extra week. George offered a fair price for the extra work and was able to complete the entire job in less than two weeks. George did professional roof work at every step and the result are quality beautiful roofs In addition to George, my hat goes off to Roberto, Morico, Jayland and Doug for putting up with heat and doing outstanding work and keeping the yard clean and offering to clean the inside of the rentals. I highly recommend McLeod's Roofing for any roofing job. Respectfully, Will (Ocean Beach)

The Roof Masters did a remarkable roof replacement job for our one hundred year old house. Initially locating them using the Thumbtack website, I reviewed all the recommendations there and in both Yelp and Home Adviser and the CA State Licensing Board. There was not one single bad review anywhere and there were lots of reviews. Our plan was to get three estimates before deciding on which licensed contractor to hire. After meeting with their project manager, Jhonny Martinez, we knew that this was the company we wanted to hire. The other two estimates would not be necessary. Jhonny is a great representative of The Roof Masters. He was very professional yet friendly. He conducted a thorough inspection of the roof, including photos, and presented a complete estimate describing the removal, installation and warranty of the new roof. We were pleased at the cost and ultimately, at the professional installation that followed. Company owner, Rudy Verdugo, met with us first thing on day one and introduced us to his crew. Rudy followed the progress by phone and was always available for questions. Job foreman, Frankie, and his three-man crew did a great job. The crew was very polite and always busy. They showed up clean every morning and left coated in decades worth of dirt and sawdust by the end of each day. After removing two layers of shingles and the original wood roof, they shored up the century old beams, applied new plywood, paper and the shingles we selected. They cleaned around our property daily, and finished the job in three days. While we won’t need a new roof anytime soon, if we did, The Roof Masters would be the only company to call

This company came to my home to repair part of my leaking roof that was causing my ceiling to buckle in the intensive rain storms we were having here in San Diego, CA. They got the job done in a day and my roof has not leaked since. The insurance company inspected it and stated that the job was well done.

Direct roofing added a roof to our addition 2-3 months ago along with fixing an old leak that the previous roofer made a mistake on and wouldn't fix even though we had a warranty. This leak caused our dinning room ceiling to crash down one morning after heavy rain the previous night. Direct roofing saw the issue and immediately fixed it for us. It has rained a few times since then and no more leak in the old place as well as in the new addition. We are very pleased with the work they did.
