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 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. 

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

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.

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.

Roof leak began while I was on the road. They responded almost immediately to my request for help and reshingled part of the roof the next day. Extremely happy with the work.

I was told by four roofing contractors over the last week that I needed to replace my 6 year old flat roof after I experienced a small leak during a hard rain. Royal Roofing accessed my roof and basically explained to me that I didn’t need to replace it yet and why. They went the high road and that’s something I will remember in the future. I will recommend them to others as well as use them whenever I need a roof repair. This father/son duo is honest and that’s hard to come by these days. Give these guys a shot, you won’t regret it.

Out of all the roofers that contacted me through 'Thumbtack', Roman Roofing was the ONLY one that did exactly what they said they were going to do. (From scheduling appointments; to getting quality roof repairs, and most important a decent price.) Ralph, Chris & the rest of the team got the job done.

Lewie with Royal Roofing was incredibly fast on his response to my needs online and even though he had a busy workload, he made my project a priority as he knew I was in a time crunch trying to help my sellers get their home sold. His professionalism, attention to my needs and his quality of work have placed him in my top partner list in my real estate network as having high quality companies with prompt response and attention to detail are imperative to successful closings. Any roofing needs my clients or I need in the future will be in the hands of Lewie and Royal Roofing. Thanks, Lewie!!

I cannot even begin to express how impressed we are with Gabisa Construction Inc. Ruben showed up on time, gave us a fair and very detailed estimate. He stayed in constant contact and handled all the paperwork. They provided the finest quality materials and completed the project in a very timely manner. His crew was very professional and took care of our home like it were their own. I really appreciate that they brought in a wheeled trailer to haul away the nearly 3 tons of debris from the old roof. (My last roofing contractor in Jacksonville damaged my driveway with their dumpster.) I highly recommend if you are in the Cape Coral/Ft Myers or surrounding areas and need a roofing contractor, call Ruben, he will treat you like family!

Initially I called Royal Roofing about a roof problem, possible leak, and discovered I had more than one problem. My A/C unit was causing a problem along with problems with some of the shingles. The estimate was free and the service was fast. They showed up on time as promised, performed the work professionally and courteously. They cleaned up after their work was completed, presented me with a reasonable bill for their services and promised follow-up if needed. Who could ask for more from a contractor.
