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 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 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. 

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 lifespans for different materials: 

Roofing material Lifespan
Asphalt 20 years
Metal 40-80 years
Copper 70 years
Clay/Concrete 100+ years
Slate 60-250 years
Simulated Slate 10-35 years

There are a variety of roofing materials available and appropriate for residential applications. When choosing roofing materials, it's essential to consider the look you want, your budget and the climate in your area. 

Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular types of roofing materials because they are affordable and relatively easy to install. They come in various colors and styles designed to last decades if properly maintained. Asphalt shingle roofs also have a higher fire resistance than other roofing materials (like wood shakes), making them an ideal choice for homes in areas prone to wildfires or other natural disasters. 

Metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular because they offer superior durability, fire-resistance and energy efficiency compared to traditional asphalt shingle roofs. They are available in various colors and styles, making them a good option if you want more customization options. Metal roofs also require less maintenance than other types of roofing materials. 

Tile roofs are an excellent option for homeowners looking for long-term durability and multiple style options. Tile roofs can have great longevity with proper maintenance, making them an ideal choice for those who don’t want to replace their roof too often. Tile roofs typically cost more than asphalt shingle or metal roofs, so if budget is an issue, this might not be the best option for you. Keep in mind that tile roofs are often made out of clay or concrete — both of which are durable.

Slate roofs are known for lasting a lifetime, which means you probably won't have to replace this type of roof. Slate is durable, a curb-appeal booster and a favorite among homeowners. Just keep in mind it can get a bit pricey.

No matter which type of material you choose, make sure that you hire a top-rated professional who knows how to properly install your home's new roof. Search Thumbtack for roofing contractors and companies in your area today.

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

Why should I get a roof inspection?

In short, a roof inspection can help protect your home while saving you money in the long run.

Roof inspections provide homeowners with crucial information about the condition of their roofing system. A professional inspector will search your roof for signs of damage that could lead to severe damage and trigger the need for expensive repairs down the road. Start searching for a top-rated roof inspector near you today.

 

What happens during a roofing inspection?

Roof inspectors are trained to look for signs of a failing roofing system that could lead to damage — especially water and structural damage. Your home's roofing materials may look great from the ground, but it's difficult to see potential damage unless you take a closer look. A roof inspector can do just that.

During an inspection, the professional will typically look for issues that may have occurred during installation and manufacturing. They’ll also keep an eye out for damage caused by normal wear and tear, as well as extreme weather events. They might also access your attic to see if there are signs of a leak in your roof.

Here’s a short list of common things a contractor will look out for during a roof inspection: 

  • Damage caused by hail, wind, snow and rain
  • Missing, broken, buckling, curling or cracked shingles 
  • Roof decay, rot, moss, mildew and mold
  • Rust around the flashing
  • Damaged chimneys and vents
  • Holes, gaps and punctures that could cause a roof leak
  • Water stains and ventilation issues

Hiring a roofing inspector prevents you from having to do the dangerous work of climbing onto your roof. Plus, inspectors know how to assess potential damage and determine the best way to repair your roof and prevent the need for more expensive repairs in the future. Start searching for a roof inspector on Thumbtack today.

When should I get my roof inspected?

Experts typically recommend that you have your roof professionally inspected at least once a year. But you also may want a licensed professional to inspect your roof during these circumstances: 

  • You're buying or selling a home
  • You're filing an insurance claim
  • Before or after a contractor does major work on your roof

Search the Thumbtack site for experienced roof inspectors near you. You can contact them directly to set up a time to conduct the inspection, and learn more about their pricing structure and services.

After another roofing compqny told me I needed to replace the entire roof around the leak, I contacted Optimum Roofing. Pedro knew what the problem was immediately and told me what needed to be done. Pricing was fair and he was out the next morning to repair the roof, just in time before another drenching rain storm. Roof is perfect. I highly recommend this company.

We spoke with Avi to coordinate the initial visitation and then worked with Francisco Gracias for the initial quote to the final roof repair. They was punctual, professional, respectful, understanding and quoted quite fairly. The work performed was consistent with what was assessed to be needed and they provided us with photos throughout the entire process for our records along with a detailed account of the repaira and condition of the roof materials that needed repair or were in good condition. We definitely recommend working with them if you need roof services! We will definitely be reaching out to them when it is time to repair our roof.

Hector and his crew did a nice job on our new roof. It took a bit longer than we expected, but it looks good. We had an unforseen situation that was brought to our attention and they took care of us. We had gutters added to our new roof and it looks wonderful

Steve and his crew are exceptionally professional, quick and on time. He and Jerry came to do a simple roof repair, and we are so impressed with them that we are now using them for all of our roofing, construction and restoration needs. These are the kind of guys I would be completely trusting to leave at the unlocked house if needed.

I was highly pleased with Golden Winter Roofing. Due to that last 30 year California rain storm, I had a major roof leak that damaged a window and flooded the carpeting. I had 3 bids and Santiago not only had the lowest price, he obviously knew what he was talking about. Santiago set up the job and his crew came on time, worked quickly and efficiently, and cleaned up immaculately. I waited to review until our next storm and can report the roof is perfect, no leaks. I don’t always take the lowest bid because I want quality. However in Santiago and Golden Winter Roofing you get both. Great quality at a fair price. I could not have asked for better job. Sam Bouman

I had termite damage along about 20 feet of the roof edge including sub facia, molding, and roof edge. About 10 roof tiles were damaged and needed replacing. Frank responded day one on thumbtack and he came out and obviously knew what he was doing. What I liked was Frank was very practical on what I needed done. The other companies I had bids from also were good but went overboard on what they say I needed. Frank’s price was a very good value for all that was done. It was very difficult to match the roof tiles and Frank kept looking until he found a good match. My wife and I are extremely happy with the carpentry and attention to detail. FH is the first place I’ll call for future jobs. I highly recommend FH Construction!
