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 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 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. 

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.

Tomas handled my roof leak in a professional manner and even sealed areas of the roof before they become a problem. He was prompt, took his time to fix the problem correctly and all for the fair price he quoted. I'm happy I found him and would hire him again if there's a need.

Jorge fixed leaks on old existing porch. He did such a great job, i hired him to repair roof at my daughter's house. He is very respectful, knowledgeable, and offers choices when it comes to the repairs. His price was reasonable for the amount of work required. I would definitely recommend Jorge as a roof contractor.

What should be a 2-3 day project turned into 14 days. That's 2 weeks with a dumpster in our driveway and constant pounding on the roof. This roofer is horrible. Don't use them. Great price, but you get what you pay for. The owner constantly told me "I'm sorry, that was my fault.". Don't care, just fix it. The work crew tore up the wood when removing old shingles and covered the holes to hide them. They made a mistake and we discovered they covered a hole in the roof with shingles instead of repairing it. Constant mistakes made and I had to be on top of them to fix it. I wouldn't be surprised if this was their first roofing job EVER.

Cris is very personable and knowledgeable. I had roof leaks that needed attention sooner rather than later as well as two vent pipes replaced. Cris promptly answered my request , quoted me a reasonable price, and completed the work to my satisfaction. Cris matched my shingles so well you can't notice the repair. He blew the debris off my roof and left the work site very clean. I will definitely hire him again.

I called the roofer for a leak; however the roofer took his time inspecting the whole roof and found many problem areas. I found the quote to be reasonable and hired the roofer right away. They were able to squeeze me in the next day right before this storm is going to hit. I'm pleased with their work.

I asked for a quote late Saturday evening & Bryan arrived on a Sunday & inspected my roof. Thankfully it's in good shape and no need for repair or replacement. Bryan had a perfect opportunity to take advantage of a paranoid homeowner - instead, he showed me WHY I have no reason for concern and didn't try to sell me something I don't need. THAT'S an honest businessman & one I will not only use if his services are needed but a contact I will pass along to anyone looking for a roofer in the future. Thank you for your honesty. A very rare quality and greatly appreciated.
