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 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 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 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.

Marcos was the first to respond to my request to fix a roof leak. He showed up within an hour, took a look at my roof and gave me a quote on the spot. He later sent me a written offer. After comparing different quotes, I went back to Marcos to cleared up a few things and he did say that he'll cover whatever comes up during the process. We set up an appointment to fix the roof, He showed up on time and was very courteous. He even let me know that he was going to grab something from HomeDepot during the job. When he was done, he provided me with photos of the job he did, before and after. Cleaned up after himself and was very nice to deal with. he also sent me a receipt later that day. I do recommend his work. PS. It didn't rain yet, but he did guarantee his workmanship for 1 year.

I had the pleasure of working with Eugene. After researching many roofers Eugene came up with the best price and plan of action. We got the permits in matter of days since he was on top of his game. I would absolutely recommend Roofing max and will use them for my future projects. Thank you.

We loved working with premier tech. Miguel was very knowledgeable and gave us a quote on the spot. His guys were in the next week to replace a fascia. They did a great job and left the place clean. I found my new roofing company. Look forward to working with them again. Overall very pleasant experience.

Straight 5 stars across all categories. Lucky at Protek did an amazing job in a timely, professional and extremely conscientious manner. On top of all that he was reasonable in his pricing and a very easy guy to work with. He found the problem that others before him had missed and repaired it in record time. Highly recommended for roofing repair jobs!!

Responded back immediately on Thumbtack. Came out the next day for an estimate. Father and son team came out a few days later to do the work and knocked it out easily, exactly as promised. Honest, down to earth, easy to work with. They don’t try to sell you anything you don’t need and they know roofs. Highly recommend and would definitely use again. True pros.

I am completely thrilled with everything. Jimmy showed up promptly the same day. He quoted me an excellent price and showed up the next morning to repair my roof. Professional is an understatement. They even cleaned up my pool and blew the yard clean. He worked with me in an emergency with zero stress! I will only use them from now on. Thank you guys!!!

I hired Alonso Roofing to replace my original tiles. They were very upfront with the project costs and estimated completion times. I appreciated them communicating tile and part delays well in advance and improving on their delivery dates. The staff was very polite and professional and they cleaned up after their work. I would have liked to have received a heads up on installation dates in advance but this was not a deal breaker. Generally speaking, I was very satisfied with the work and I would recommend them to anyone.

Ryan and his team are the most professional contractors I have ever come across in south florida. In an environment that feels like everyone is out to make a buck at any expense Ryan and RJ Chambers Roofing are A RARE EXCEPTION! PROFESSIONAL. COURTEOUS. EXCELLENT WORKMANSHIP! They said they would be there at 8, they arrived just before. They said it would take 1.5 days. They worked diligently from dawn to dusk to make that happen. They even went and paint matched the house colour to the fascia board without me even asking! Thoughtful in their manner and in their work. They gave a quote, that is what I paid. Transparent, Communicative, Trustworthy. I CANNOT RECOMMEND RYAN AND HIS FIRM HUGHLY ENOUGH! THANK YOU!
