Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What type of roof is best for DC weather?

Roofs in Washington, DC, should be able to hold up against snowstorms and hurricanes, as both weather conditions are fairly common in the nation’s capital.

Metal roofs are not susceptible to harsh winds, rain, heat and storms in the same way that shingles are. Slate and clay roofs are also good choices as they are some of the strongest roof types.

Here are the best roofers in DC — contact one of these pros to start your roof installation project today.

How much value does a new roof add to DC homes?

If you’re replacing your roof, you will likely have a great return on your investment, according to data from the Remodeling Impact report.

The report found that you can recoup 107% of the value of adding a new roof. Plus, replacing an old roof will make your home more attractive — both to your neighbors and perhaps even potential buyers when it comes time to sell your home.

If you need help deciding if you should install a new roof, contact the best roofers in Washington, DC.

When is the best time to install a new roof in DC?

If possible, try to install your roof when the weather is ideal and before extreme hot or cold weather hits. The winter months tend to experience snow in Washington, DC, so aim to install your new roof a few months before then.

Reach out to the best roofers in DC for help with installing your new roof or repairing a broken one.

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

Very easy to communicate with, and rapid turnaround of work, which with leaking roofs is such a help. Patched roof stood up to heavy rains.

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

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!

Luis offered to come on a rainy night and tarp the roof. He ended up coming promptly the next morning. He sealed the roof and fixed the problem. He’s professional, punctual and a problem solver.

It was a pleasure working with this company. I had to leave town due to death in the family and never actually met Santos. But he arrived on time providing me pictures and explanations of the roof repair needed. He worked with a sense of urgency and fix my leaky roof. His swift action and honesty gave me the peace of mind to focus on family. I would recommend him and definitely considering the company to repair my entire roof.

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.

The H. Stewart team was quick to come by for a quote and even had a team available that day to get our roof painting job done in no time. They were courteous, efficient, and competively priced. We especially appreciated their honesty about what we needed. I would recommend them to anyone looking for roofing expertise.

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.
