Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. 

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 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.

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.

I had a small leak in a corner of my shingle roof. Dario and Barry were very helpful and patient with my endless questions and helped me to understand the repair process. It is hard for the common layman to understand roofing talk but they went out of their way to make sure I knew what they were doing .........and pictures of the finished repairs certainly helped. Both Dario and Barry were very professional throughout the process and finished when they said they would. I certainly recommend Storm Roofing and Repair for any roof repair or replacement.

I had roof repair done a year ago and the leak continued. However Dry Guys roofing, was able to find the problem, fix it properly and the roof no longer leaks. I highly recommend Dry Guys roofing. Josh was able to troubleshoot and find the problem he just would not give up until he found the problem and fixed it. He demonstrates not only skill but he cares about his customers. When the time comes to completely replace the roof I will definitely call Dry Guys Roofing and Repair.

We had a roof leak and it turned out to be a bigger problem than we expected. We phoned several roofing companies and were told over the phone how bad our roof was and it would be better to redo the roof. The house is 14 years old with a tile roof. We called storm roofing, they made arrangements to come out right away and provide a free estimate. They arrived on time, took many pictures of the needed repair and provided us several options on the work needed. Not once did they mention an entire roof, not once did they attempt to add on to the work I needed to fix the problem. Gave me a written estimate AND SUGGESTED I GET A FEW MORE ESTIMATES FROM OTHER COMPANIES. I phoned two additional companies, one showed up and was more money, the other made an appointment, called and wanted to reschedule. I went with Storm roofing, I was home the day of repair and was impressed by the quality and care they put into their work. If you have a roofing problem, call them, they did a great job!

Barry's guys were courteous professional and on time every day. They have now completed two jobs for me with complete satisfaction. I highly recommend Storm. I like it that they do not replace roofs. Only do repairs.

I highly recommend Storm Roofing, it was a great experience! I had a minor roof repair that I needed fixed for my homeowners insurance that was found during an inspection when closing on our new home. I was intimidated calling a roofer for something less than a complete re-roof as this has been the reception I received when I called around. It wasn't worth the time for most companies, and that was discouraging. When Barry replied to my request I was comforted in the fact that he knew exactly what I needed and even pointed another small fix my roof needed. He was polite, informative, and fast. He went by my house the same day I called and fixed the roof within the next day, PLUS a more than fair price. He is efficient in the way business is conducted and if your a busy person this is the roofer you want. Again, I highly recommend. As an insurance agent I come across needs like mine often and I am certainly going to refer him to my clients!
