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.

I needed a repair to a flat roof section and the roof to our florida room. I was getting estimates that it would of been cheaper to replace rather than repair. Rod was prompt, courtious, and priced right. I would highly recommend him as your first call.

Christopher and his crew were top notch professionals. I knew from the moment I got the estimate that he was going to do the job right. There was no cutting corners. He started the job on the date we were given and it was completed in a timely manner. Ours is an attached home with an asphalt roof, he picked the color to match the neighbor perfectly. We received daily video updates of the roof with detailed explanations of what was being done. Everything was perfect and up to code and passed all inspections from Palm Beach County. Really nice guy and really good hard working crew. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to use Aventura Roofing & Construction.

he came out within a few days of the roof leak to quote. His price was fair and in the middle with a one year warranty (I got 4 quotes for comparison). He was able to complete within a few days of the quote during rainy season. He did the 3 valleys of my tile roof, one leaked into kitchen and one rotted away a fascia board. He even went to Home Depot and painted the fascia to match.

I had a great experience working with Vincent. My sunroom roof was getting pretty old and unfortunately sprung a leak. Vincent was able to inspect my roof the same day I called and was able to recommend several different options. He was very professional and took the time to clearly explain each of the options. I found his rates to be very fair and affordable. Vincent started and finished the job the very next day. I'm very pleased with the job and would definitely use this company again in the future.

They went to Home depot . Picked up Plywood made for roofing membrane, peel and stick worked on it all day and finished. Wow what a great job, as we had someone fix that 2 years ago who didn't do anything but put paper 1 layer down and charged the same as this great job cost. Very good job!!!!

Angelo answered my request and came the next day. He was very professional, punctual and pleasant. He gave me an estimate immediately and was ready to work on the problem very soon. I didn't hire him because there was some other issue but I highly recommend him for his professional behaviour. Will use him for a roof work in the future.

I don’t understand how someone could run a business like this. I was told 3 days for a roof, it took 3.5 months to complete. My backyard is still covered with nails, which made way to my car tires(twice), there’s tar spilled down the side of my wall in my yard, the new plywood used is left unpainted, the company is impossible to get a hold of, I had to fix the inside of my bathrooms when they carelessly removed the skylights, garbage tossed into my neighbors yard....the list goes on.
