Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Can a handyman repair a roof?

A handyman may be able to repair simpler problems on a roof, such as damaged shingles or gutters. However, it’s important that you hire a pro who’s properly trained and skilled to handle your roof repairs. When in doubt, research the licensing requirements in your state, and review several handymen and roofers before making a decision. 

Is it better to repair or replace a roof?

It depends on the severity of the damage. If a falling branch or a windstorm damages an isolated patch of shingles, you could probably repair it. However, if the underlayment is damaged or if the whole roof is showing signs of wear, you might need to replace it. 

Always have a professional roofer near you assess the roof before making a decision.

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.

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.

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.  

Do roofers offer remote or virtual services?

To find out the degree to which a roofing service can operate remotely, it’s best to contact local roofers and roofing repair specialists near you.

See if they will schedule a video call so that you can show them the project and get an idea of the cost. This will also allow them to give you recommendations on the type of roofing material, and the best time of year to do the project. You might also be able to book a roof installation or repair service far out in advance.

Bill arrived to inspect the property shortly after contacting William Mackay Roofing and took pictures and video of the damage needing repairs. A quote was provided that day and the repair was scheduled shortly thereafter. Workmanship was great and photographs were shared after the work was completed to show the condition of the roof before and after. Very happy with William Mackay Roofing and will be sure to contact them for future roofing needs

I am unable to assess the quality of roof repair until a future inclement weather event. However, Mr. Derek Baker was professional, plesant, punctual, and fair. I won't hesitate to contact him for future projects! THANK YOU, THUMBTACK! Roof repair tested well in heavy snow and rain. Money well spent!

Very quick response and easy to schedule. William repaired a leak in my roof, which appears to be successful after two rainstorms.

I had an urgent roof issue during a rain storm and they quickly sent someone out who not only was able to quickly diagnose the problem, but fully explain to me why it was happening and how it could be fixed. They were able to get a crew out within 48 hours and did a fantastic job on the repairs. I highly recommend them for any roof repairs!

Had a top notch experience with H. Stewart Roofing. Very professional and responsive, they were able to accommodate a quick turnaround request from us to fix a roof-leak issue. Did an awesome roof-patching/sealing job (with guarantee) for far less than others. Our current roofer was unwilling to do this and was insisting on replacing the entire roof for 3 times the cost of a repair. Thank you Henry and team for prompt and excellent service at a time of need!

My first time requesting roof repairs... very nervous! I selected the first two Top Pros that appeared from my request, H. Stewart Roofing was the first to respond. (immediately). Very polite, punctual and seemingly very knowledgable. The issue {leaking ceiling only with wind driven rain} was identified and addressed within 2 hours. I was assured with confidence the issue has been resolved. Offered to come out in a few weeks to access the repair work.

Erick was a lifesaver (or roofsaver). We had a leaking roof that put our paint work on hold. Erick was able to come by that same day to look at the roof and did the repairs the following day (moving around his schedule to accamodate me). He explained the situation clearly and sent me photos after everything was fixed. Highly recommend.

William was great to work with. He arrived on time and provided a detailed assessment of the problem. I had a split roof rafter, and I was worried that an upcoming snowstorm would cause that roof section to collapse under the weight of snow. William recommended an inexpensive, temporary fix to buy time through the winter. In the spring I'll hire William for the permanent repair. William is very knowledgeable about roofing and construction, and he was a pleasure to work with. I definitely would recommend hiring him.

I called Itouch Roofing after a heavy rainstorm because of a leak in my ceiling they came out almost immediately, made repairs to my roof until it can be suitably be replaced. I am very appreciative of the prompt response, the quality of the work and their kind and wonderful attitude. I give them five stars, I enjoyed the interaction between me and the staff. I will be using them soon to replace the roof and gutters and definitely recommend them to my family and friends.

We had an issue with a skylight, and they came out quickly to give me a quote. I was slow to get back to them, but they made time for the work and were able to fix the skylight, along with some other roofing repairs. I really liked working with Ruth and Saul, and I'll be calling them again for sure!
